I have finally finished my first real knitting project! Remember that lovely Italian yarn I picked up last month? I used the turquoise to knit a scarf for my friend Emily, who's in college in Minnesota and complained to me last month that her current scarf isn't wide enough. So I made her an 8"-wide scarf. It which covers my ears, nose, mouth, and chin, so I hope she thinks it's wide enough too!
This yarn is a wool blend from Jo-Ann's Sensations Bellezza Collection, and I had lots of fun working with it because it has a hand spun texture, with sections that are wide and thick and others that are thinner. And through it all runs a shiny silver strand to add extra glamour. The hand spun texture is what makes the edges uneven -- I'm not that bad at knitting, honest!
As for the black scarf I was knitting for my son... I ripped it all out because it got weird. So either I'll start it over, or maybe try something entirely different.
