Well, I finally finished the scarf. Its my first of 6. After two long weeks, (though I finished it one day shy of two weeks), I think I did well. It only has 2 flaws.. one side is longer than the other and I knitted a stitch that should have been purled.
Here is a few pics. This is a far away shot
And here is a close up.
I am making a red and black one now and a shawl for Charlie and his mom.
