At first, i was doing well with one row knit, then one row purl, until I started to realize that I was making a tube, not the scarf I was aiming to create. My sister suggested doing garter stitch (all knit, no purl) and I started over.
It's really a hot mess. I preferred the stockinette stitch much more, but this garter stitch is growing on me. You can see that I was all over the place when i started and my tention was wacky, but I've calmed down.
Since this is a practice, i was throwing in some experiemental stuff (you can see a row of k1 p1 in the above picture). Well, it's experimental for me, anyway. I kinda want to knit all the time, now. But, i do have a little business to take care of (you know, kids, house, etsy shop).
Next order of business: replace my 'project bag' with something a little cuter :)
