So, after my HP PoA scarf knitting marathon, I let my poor hands rest a mere 16 hours and have started my Dark Mark Illusion scarf. I'm on Row 10 of Chart 1, and have learned several things ...
1. I'm a painfully slow purl knitter.
2. My 1st rows after casting on are horribly fugly.
I frogged the scarf twice (the first because I hated the first knitted row, the second because I mysteriously had 34 stitches by row 21 - you're supposed to have only 31
), but my third attempt is going well. My first knitted row is still fugly, but I'll hide it with the fringe :rollseyes: only my KH friends will know my secret
Other than that, I'm enjoying knitting this scarf, the pattern is very easy to read, and it knits up really quickly!
I'm using Caron's Simply Soft in Black and Caron's Simply Soft Brites in fluorescent green, and US7 needles. Despite having just 2.5 hours of sleep this morning because of the midnite movie, I can't wait to get home and knit!
