Well, I officially completed my first pattern knitting project! I made a scarf with the Baby Chevrons pattern from one of my favorite knit and crochet books, 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns. Look how pretty!
I consider myself primarily a crocheter, but I learned how to YO, K2tog, and psso so I could do patterns like this. (Don't worry, that's knit-speak.)
I suppose now I must move onto more difficult patterns in the book - if anyone likes this scarf, speak up and maybe you'll find it in your Christmas stocking!
