Except for my 3-partial-days the summer before last, I have never knitted before. So I’m pretty durn proud of myself for getting this far since I got off work / went shopping for yarn this morning. It’s just under 4″ already. It’s wider than I planned, but I had no concept of how many stitches equaled the width I wanted. I don’t mind it being so wide, though. If I had known how even it would turn out, I would have learned knitting ages ago! I’m definitely making matching wristies when I’m done with the scarf. I’m gonna be a matching nerd this winter, all-out.
