So here is the first real knitting project I've completed. I made a scarf for my mama using a multi-colored yarn. I don't think I dropped any stitches! And I made fringe (which was way easier than I thought it would be). I used a pretty cheap acrylic yarn, so its not very soft. I heard it might soften up with washings. I think I am comfortable enough with the needles to upgrade to nicer fibers so down the road, I'll have to make mom another, softer scarf. But for now, I'll give her the honors of having my very first knit!
