My first completed knitting project

I finally finished my knobbly scarf lastnight.......it's my very first completed knitting project!
I've tried knitting a few times before but I've never actually finished anything, so I'm glad that I've finally made something wearable (and I'm keeping it for me).

I added tassels at both ends.....I had no idea how to do this properly so I just made it up and seemed to work ok.

My nine year old nephew was nice enough to model it for me lastnight. I think it looks exquisite with his kung fu pyjama outfit...don't you think!

Well done !! I've tried knitting, but it never works out. So I've switched to crochet instead.

Hey, I see you got into the Mixtogether. So did I. YAY, so we'll get to meet in person. How exciting.

It looks so warm and cozy... mmm! Makes me think of snugging up in a cafe somewhere with a mug of coffee on a rainy day. Well done!

Hoorah for finished first knits!!!

So what's the next project?!

(Mine next knitted thing after graduating from straight scarves was the hothead beanie from Stitch n Bitch. Simple, quick and not straight edges so good for learning a new skill.)

Scarf is fab, and big bonus points for finishing it (i'm the queen of UFO knitting)
