Something different

This evening I began a scarf that you knit sideways: 450 stitches! Only one row so far...but I'm intrigued! I love the wool I'm using. There are three different colors that coordinate well. At last a project for ME! Smile

Wow well I guess you already know the lenght. When I made the one that I did I kept having questions about it's length and if I should add more or not Smile

Oh wow! What type of needles are you knitting that on?

I'm using a very long circular needle (3mm). It is such a simple pattern but I've made many mistakes and gone back and corrected many times. Fortunately, the rest are quite invisible. Never have I done that before. REALLY! It is boring yet interesting... I'll take a picture soon.

OK, I finished it and was happy with the result until I made a HUGE mistake and accidentally cut it!!! I can't believe I did that...and I've been in a terrible mood as a result. My friend is going to try to fix it for me. SO STUPID! I was trimming the fringe and actually cut the knitted part......:bonkself:
