Quick Scarf

Here’s a blue scarf

made with the same Thick and Quick (Lion Brand) yarn that I made my first hat with.

I did a rib stitch, and it came out smaller than I expected. Not bad for a first project… I saw a how to knit article in Real Simple magazine and figured I’d give it a go.

my first project, the Italy scarf

I went on a group ski trip to Italy and got sucked into knitting when I saw all the beautiful yarn they had there. I bought a few skeins, then spent 45 minutes in my hotel room trying to remember how to cast on. I had tried to learn how to knit the year before, but what I came up with I don’t consider a project… so this is my first.

This yarn is so soft. I had enough left to have a go at the hat. I didn’t know at the time that stockinette stitch would curl, so I ended up with a roll up hat, which I’m still not happy with. I bought some white Lamb’s Pride bulky yarn locally to go with the Italian yarn.
