YIPEE!! I finished my very first knit scarf! Its the Feather and Fan scarf pattern, using size 7 needles and Red Heart Tweed.
Knitting takes way longer than crocheting, so I'm very excited that I actually finished it.
The scarf measures just under 60" and is about 6" wide. It should have been wider, but I discovered I knit very tightly. I also crochet very tightly, so I wasn't shocked to see my knitting follow the same pattern.
I used the crochet bind-off method at KnittingHelp.com that Andrea pointed me to. Thanks Andrea, I love this method.
It definitely has mistakes in it, but it was a really good learning experience for me. I learned how to increase and decrease, which is lace in the knitting world.
I'm not 100% sure what my next knitting project will be. I've been bitten by the learn-to-sew bug. :)
P.S. - Laura, the Runaway Grandpa is married to non-dirty Grandma. If he was married to Dirty Grandma, I can't even imagine the trouble they'd get themselves into!
