This won't turn into a knitting blog, I promise, but I just wanted to share my progress with everybody--especially Katrina! Here's my scarf-in-progress. This first picture shows you the detail I added (suggested by Margaret and Kerry, Dave's mom and my cousin):
This second picture gives you a better idea about the colour of the wool, but the focus isn't that great.
I realize it's not perfect (Kerry had to rescue me from a near disaster once, but there's still a little hole in the middle of a row), but it's neat to see the scarf coming together. I MADE THAT!
Yesterday, Kerry (and my mom) took me to a knitting shop and bought me some more needles (thanks, Kerry!!), and I bought a beginner's knitting book and some wool for another scarf (this time for Dave). Watch out, world! Maybe someday I'll do an oboe cozy! (Puh-lease...do not let me knit an oboe cozy!)
