Scarf Update  
Been a while since I've done one of these!

Anyway, when the cats aren't dedicated to sabotaging my knitting, it goes pretty well. I've gotten to the point where it takes me less than five minutes to do one complete row (two passes) of garter stitch, so I can usually add an inch to the scarf just on my lunch break at work. I've managed to get the stitches to be fairly consistent, but the width of the scarf has fluctuated over time. Not hugely, but it niggles at my perfectionist leanings.

I'm almost halfway done, and the scarf is now a few inches taller than I am (I'm 5' 5 1/2"). Here's part of it:

I'm starting to think I bought way too much yarn. I'm still on the first ball of yarn with every color. Oh well, I can figure out something to knit with all the excess- or I can make a couple of Doctor Who scarf starter kits for people ;)

Hehe, great icon- thanks! ^_^ It's easy and fun, just takes some practice! I find the videos and instructions on this site to immensely helpful.

Oh wow! That's really impressive. Last time I tried to knit, I kinda got all tied up. Literally. I had to wait for my sister to cut me free.

Thanks, hon!

You should definitely give it another shot. It's the perfect time-killer for commercials and halftime during a football game! ;)

knitting is awesome. I just started right after Christmas...getting really close to finishing my first scarf. I'm starting to get frustrated because I keep seeing patterns for really cool things I want to do...but I don't know enough technique yet:-p How long have you been working on this scarf? Looks like its coming along very nicely.

Thank you! I got started with knitting the scarf in November. I thought for sure it'd take me years to make any progress, heh, but you definitely get faster with the knitting over time.

Good luck with your own scarf! =)
