I finished my first scarf for the Special Olympics Scarf Project.
I am please with how it turns out. I do have a lot of curling on the edges and I remember my Gram blocking her knit things. So I guess I need to do that too. It is all part of the learning process I guess. Here is a link to the pattern I used.
I have started my second scarf… and I have already abandoned it to start a third one. The Second scarf is striped. I have tried carrying the yarn up the side as I knit. Didn’t like that (might be doing it wrong, or maybe it is right, just didn’t like it).
Then I started cutting the yarn each time I started a new color. Well, that is leaving a TON to tails that I am going to have to weave it. Not to thrilled about that, but I know it is part of knitting.
If I don’t like something, I have learned to put it aside and come back to it, so that is what I did… put it aside.
So far, I like how the third one is coming along.
Has anyone else out there started knitting or crocheting a scarf for the Special Olympics Project?
