Purple. Puffy. Perfect for a 13-Year-Old

 Need I say more? Well, ok, just a few words...

I have no clue what's going on with the color in this pic.

My  niece, Miss J, asked me to knit her a scarf a la my very first knitting project. This is such an easy project  that I said yes. We decided it should be purple - a lilac shade.

It took just a few nights on the couch while watching tv. Basically, all you do is cast on, knit the whole way (garter stitch) and then bind off when you run out of yarn. Voila! You have a scarf. I made Miss J's scarf a bit shorter and narrower than mine - just 2 balls of yarn.


Have a great weekend, everyone!

The sides of my first knitted scarf were not so even. You did a very nice job!
