Knitting Fever

I have caught the knitting bug in a big way.  I just cannot stop knitting these days.  In the past few weeks, I have one regular and two infinity scarves.  I am still fairly new to knitting, so I'm only able to do simple projects (hence all the scarves.)  But my next project is a leg warmer.

This was my most recent scarf.  I am still deciding whether I want to sew the ends together to make an infinity scarf or just leave it as is.  But either way, I am pleased with how it turned out.

 I wanted to do a really chunky, loose knit scarf so I used big needles (size 19) and thick yarn.  The yarn was Bernat Roving wool blend in the color Lotus, which is a nice yellow green.

 I cast on 15 times.  It seems wide at first when you are doing such a loose knit, but the stitch I used curls a bit, so it ended up narrower.

 I did the stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl one row)  Like I said, this stitch tends to curl in on the sides, so take that into account when casting on.
That's the finished product!  Just a super fast, easy scarf.
