Back to the beginning of my adventures in knitting

This is the first scarf I made that I was proud of.

It was made in 2 x 2 ribbing from an knitting naturally pattern.
Knitting Naturally and About.com were (then) my first point of call for knitting stuff. Now I know better and I tend to frequent ravelry.

It was made using Homemaker Acrylic 8 ply in hot pink that I bought from K-mart. Again before I knew any better and thought that wool was wool (yarn was yarn). Now I know better and have only scraped the tip of the iceberg.

I knitted it using 4.5m needles and it took me a couple of weeks.
There’s a couple of anomalies on it, but overall I’m pretty proud.

Me lurking under a no-smoking sign, trying to surreptitiously take a photo of myself.
I really must enlist a helper in these things…
