Furry Scarf..of Doom!

I just finished the scarf. It's so furry that when it was sitting on the couch I though it was my black cat. I swear I can hear it purr. In any case I just finished it (weaving in the ends too) and now I know I'm going to have to wear the thing. I'm not a furry scarf type of person (I applaud any person who can pull them off) but i know I'm going to wear it because A: It's my first KNITTED thing EVER and B: I just spent hours of my life on this thing. Which isn't so bad since what else would I have been doing anyway? But, you know....it's furry! It does have several things going for it, it's soft, squishy and comfortable around my neck. Ok not so bad. It's even freakishly cold here (I'm in So.Cal) so I can wear it. Nice. At least it'll get some use before I shove it in the closet once it warms up.

What I can take from this experience is that I can knit, and make something not sucky. Watch out world here I come!

....I just hope I don't get in trouble for not waiting for my next class to have cast off....

Congratulations on your first completed project!
It is true that furry yarn hides mistakes but it also makes it harder for you to see you work (important all the time but especially when you're new) and well, they're furry. I say knit with whichever yarn you want.

Thanks! I started on hand spun/dyed wool, and so far it's lookin' good (and I can see my stitches!). I don't know what I'm going to do with it per-say but...it's fun!
