Harry Potter Scarf

ok well, i finished my pink scarf on saturday [no picture yet] and im starting the Harry Potter house scarf, in Gryffindor colors...i had to return the blue yarn i got, because it was all fuzzy and im not equipped enough to work with that yet, so im sticking to regular yarn for now...anyway lol here are pictures of the yarn for the scarf

<-- this is the gold yarn, excuse my toe i was taking the picture on the car floor

this is the burgundy yarn, excuse the blurriness and my other toe...its a deep red

and this is how far ive gotten, since yesturday at like 9

im a little farther along, though i found out im going to have to alter the pattern because right there is 20 rows, the pattern says to switch to the other color after 22 rows, and that is way to thin for the hp scarf, im going to have to do 44 i think...hopefully i dont run out of yarn, especially since i got the gold on sale.....ohh gosh that would be bad

new material...finally!

ok, well when i went to walmart today [which is how i could upload the pictures from my phone because i dont get service at my house] i bought some new yarn!! its not the yarn for the HP house scarves, but its the yarn for my tote/messenger are the pictures!

<-- this is a close up of the yarn in the place i took it, you cant tell but it has a little purple mixed into it..its pretty

<-- this is a better picture, you can see the purple towards the end

<-- this is the button im going to close the bag with, its sort of pearlized


<--- ok, well this is a close-up of how the scarf looks when it is knitted, as you can tell it goes from dark pink to light pink to white and then back

<-- this is the picture i took of my scarf on my very first post...August 19th i think, but i'll have to check on it...that was the very first day i learned how to knit, or maybe it was the day after i dont remember lol

<-- this is a picture of the scarf now! i took it today, its not totally done, but it's pretty much there...right now it is 30 inches long!! wohoo

~first post~

Well, seeing as how i just officialy taught myself how to knit yesturday, i do not have much to post. I dont have a digital camera, so I am either going to have to take pictures with my cell phone, or with a disposable camera and post my projects all at once..i think ill try the camera..just to see how the pictures come out. So far i am still just practicing, trying to make all the stiches the same tension and what not, but i am hoping to make some Harry Potter house scarves, a Hermione hat and mitten set, and small messenger bag and all that good stuff. I am going to start off small though...and well thats all for now. When i get a picture i will post it
