I'm Knitting

This could be disastrous.

Thankfully, so far so good.

Since I'm broke, for Christmas, I'm making gifts. For my dad, I'm making a scarf. It will by mostly white but with a set of three stripes at each end.

I'm using 4 mm needles, and two different polyester yarns.  I started by casting on 40 stitches.

(In case you don't know, the black strands hanging off of there are place markers. I placed them every 10 stitches to keep count)

I knit 5 rows with the white yarn, 

then I switched over to the black yarn,

and knit 15 rows with that.

Back to white, and I knit 10 stitches, then 10 more in black.

I then added another 15 rows in white, and and 5 rows with the black. From there on, it's all white until I feel like it's long enough to finish off. 

This is how far I've gotten.

I've got a looooonnng way to go.   And so little time.
