Yeah! Last night I finally finished my first ever knitting project!
Everything went great. Even the casting off which I had obviously never done before. Then I was left with 1 stitch on the RH needle. I followed the instructions and was told to pull the yarn to tighten the knot...but it started to unravel!!
So it's ruined. It was that crazy eyelash yarn, i think that's what it's called. So I found it impossible to try and undo the damage because I couldn't see any loops because of the yarn.
Anyway I decided to keep unravelling and to my amazement I got back my 3 balls of yarn, no knots, I didn't have to cut the yarn.
I'm not too dissapointed. The scarf had holes and dropped stitched, but for my first attempt it wasn't bad...but I'd never have worn the scarf outside lol
I figure I've got my yarn back I can knit it again and this time it will be better.
I thought i'd have been totally distraught if something like that happened, to mess it up on the very last stitch, but I proved that I could do it.
I then decided to cast on some stitches, knit a few rows and to try and cast off again, it ended up like a scarf for a Barbie doll. But this time when I did my casting off, I did it right!!
Woooooo! So i know I can do it. I'm actually quite happy.
It's almost like I get mroe value for money with my yarn because I can use it again lol.
Anyway just thought I'd share my first every knitting experience
