I've never done a KAL hopefully it's still okay that I join. I bought my yarn today and I am going to go cast on as soon as I get off of here. I really have no idea why I am making this huge scarf, considering I live in nice old warm Florida. But I guess it's the thought that counts. Right? Everyone's look great so far.

I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

Okay, so, I'm a super newbie at knitting, so I have a couple questions...

I don't know how to knit with circular needles nor do I have any, so could I, say, knit two separate pieces and seam them together?  Circular needles look a little intimidating!  And to switch yarn colors, do I just tie the tails in a knot and trim?

Sorry for the stupid questions, gah!  I feel silly, but I really want to make sure I know what I'm doing before I start my scarf.  Just not sure yet whether I want a Ravenclaw (book version) or a Slytherin one.

Hey, what yarns are you guys using?  I want to make a little mini shrug in Gryffendor colors instead of  a scarf, and I want to know what yarn would be good.

I adore Simply Soft, which is what I think night_owl said she was using as well.  I'm not sure that there is a gryffindor gold color, though...

Smiley There are no silly questions when you are trying to learn, silly! Tongue

First: If you are going to seam (which,for me, is harder to do than using circs, LOL!) you should just make one piece and seam it up the side - not two... you'd cast on the 70 stitches or whatever it calls for, knit it straight, and then seam it up the side.
To use circulars: All you do is cast on, knit that first row, and when you get to the end where normally you'd turn your work and start over, you just grab the end and knit it to the beginning, and keep on knitting for the next 413 rows, LOL! (I hate to purl, so I love circs for this scarf.)

All I do to join my ends is tie them in a knot - there may be other ways, but that's easier for me.

www.knittinghelp.com has a great video to teach circular knitting, if you wanted to try it.

Good Luck, and remember to show us pictures!! Smiley

Thank you!  And one more question... when knitting with circular needles, how is it that you get a stockinette stitch when you're just knitting and not purling at all?  Shouldn't that end up being a garter stitch?
