|Blue and white scarf|
I got inspired by citika to start knitting again. I decided to make something simple enough that I might actually be able to finish it, and decided on using some yarn that has been lying around for ages. I started out with blue yarn and made a checkered pattern using two straight, two purled for four turns and then doing the opposite.
When I'd finished the first of the two skeins the scarf was only 40 cm long, which won't be enough to tie it. So I'm now using a skein of white yarn and when that's finished I'll go back to the blue one again. The white yarn will not be checkered, I will do two straight, two purled the whole time. That should make it a little less wide around the neck which suits me fine.
