so this is my first ever crochet project i joined the kint and crochet club at my school started by two of my friends and fellow craftsters stefferoo and superchloe and they said to start off on a scarf of course so i was like i don't want a boring scarf i'll get some variegated yarn but that was not a good idea because i got this

(sorry it's sideways)
one end was something like 18 stitches i think and when i finished it it was only like 12 orsomething  Embarrassed

The pattern also kept changing i dunno whether that was my fault, it probably was but it was annoying

comments and whatever are welcome i know it sucks and i probably won't wear it ever also i haven't weaved in the ends cause i was mad at it Cheesy but i've started a new project and hopefully it will turn out better

reality is for people lacking an imagination.

I like it!

The good thing about scarves is that you can always wrap it and knot it till it looks perfectly fine.
It's better than my first project! We've got a long skinny not-quite-a-scarf dishcloth now.

For your first project, that looks really good!  my first scarf was something like this:


if that makes sense...it was much more wobbly than yours!

You often find variegated yarns turn out like that, so don't fret that it was your fault. I think you have done a smashing job on your first go  Grin Keep it up, you'll soon be making loads of cool stuff.

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

I think it's a fantastic job for your first go around.  I stink at crochet, and my first thing turned out looking like a horrid yellow man-thong!  LOL

told youuuuuu it was good.
seriously, your guage was even and stuff.
and it totally isn't your fault about the yarn colours not cooperating.
it was under "newest projects from crochet category" and I was like hey! I know that scarf!

That's awesome to me. I have that same yarn and I made my godson an outfit for our b-day with it. Yep we share a b-day but I like your scarf.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Yeah, varigated yarns are hit or miss, but that is totally awesome for a first project.  I shudder to think how my first project went...the blanket I started sort of turned into a weird trapezoid, and I did maybe five inches on it!  Took me a good 16 years to try it again, so good on you for sticking with it!
