We had a great day knitting. But what a comedy of errors mine turned out to be. I really need to knit more often. Everytime I come back to it I have to relearn everything. I started off trying to crochet it by accident as I just got the two things mixed up in my mind. Hence the beginning resembles a loose doily. After the first 10 rows I realised that I kept forgetting to alternate each row so it was coming out in ribs. Then I cunningly decided to keep with the rib so it looked like I had done it on purpose, at which point I totally got the rib wrong and changed lanes. I am so awful at this pattern remembering stuff. I can't remember one stitch from the next! I also ended up with a few random holes in the middle. I almost didn't want to use my shiny blue button by the end but then I stopped being so hard on my poor scarf. I just promised myself I would start number 2 tomorrow and improve.
