This project includes a few knitting “firsts” for me: increasing and decreasing stitches, following a pattern, joining two skeins of yarn mid-project, and a new way to cast on. I am very pleased with how this turned out.
I began this as practice to get used to increases and decreases so I would eventually feel comfortable with knitting a sweater. I can’t say that I’m completely comfortable with the idea of knitting a sweater, but after this scarf I feel prepared to take the plunge. It even looks cool on the under side!
Once I am finished with my knitted afghan, I’m going to get started on the Aidez sweater. I’m a little hesitant since I heard that some people have had sizing issues, but I’m going to try it out anyway. Wish me luck!
