So, on the first day of spring I finally finished knitting hubby a heavy winter scarf. I started this in September, for his birthday in November. Better late than never.
I didn't use a pattern, and just did the whole thing in knit stitch, and it's far from perfect. That said, for my first project, I am really happy. Hubby is too.
I've now moved on to my second project, and my first from a pattern. With my slow stitching it should be ready for winter.
