Learning to Knit

So, I've always wanted to learn how to knit.  I know how to crochet but have never learned to knit.  Well, things changed and my aunt KK showed me how to knit a couple of weeks ago.  I picked it up fairly quickly, I think, and dove into making my first project, what else, a scarf. 
This is my progress so far.  Not too bad for my first knitted project.  The beginning was a bit rough, but I worked through it and I think I have the hang of things down now.
See, not so pretty in some areas. 
But, I like to think that I've improved as I've continued to knit.  Don't 'cha thing?

I've only been doing a knit stitch for this scarf.  The next one I try I'll use knit and pearl together. 


  1. You sure picked it up fast!! Looks great!

  2. Last year I picked up directions for a knitted scarf at Michael's ( it said make in ten took me at least 40!!!) Those needles are too long!! You are doing a nice job.

  3. Jen, you're doing fantastic! The purl stitch will be a breeze for you!
