My first attempt at knitting...

I was taught to knit when I was a little girl by my nonna, but that didn't work out too well :) So here I am about 20 some odd years later, trying again :) Doing the simple basic stitches, I found it was pretty easy. Not as easy as I find crocheting, but then again I have been crocheting for about 16 years now. Anyway, I was in JoAnn Fabrics on afternoon and I don't know what possessed me, but before I knew what I was doing I had 3 different sets of knitting needles, a stitch counter, a how to book and, of course, a basket FULL of yarn. I know, this has never happened to any of you *wink* Then I went home and got started, and started again, and again, etc.... *giggle* I must have pulled this scarf apart and started over at least 5 times. The last time I did, I was half way through when my cat jumped on my lap and scared the dickens out of me and I dropped a good number of stitches. Being new to knitting I had NO idea how to fix this, so I did the only thing I knew, pull it apart and start over. I did finally finish it though! Here it is!

I still need to block it (something I had no clue about till just a few days ago - tee hee), but not bad for a first attempt. What do you think? Any pointers for future projects?

This looks like it turned out great!

Amy and I were just talking about our first knitting projects last night. I still have mine (and wear it). Sadly, hers unraveled. : (
