I'm a newbie

Hello everyone!! Ive been reading this KAL for a while, I just never posted -- but I finally have something I've been working on that I'd like to share! hooray!
This is a variation on the Misty Garden scarf made out of Peruvian Collection Baby Cashmere (from Elann). It is a real lightweight yarn so all I did was add another repeat of the feather and fan pattern to make the scarf wider. I think I bumped it up to 56 stitches instead of the 38 the pattern calls for, and it's been working out nicely. I'm about half done- so far I've used 2 balls of yarn, so when it's finished I think it'll take a total of about 4.


Anyway, keep up the great knitting -- reading this KAL is very inspiring, it gives me tons of ideas!

    Your scarf is beautiful, and I bet it's incredibly soft.

    Just wondered whch size needles you're using with this yarn? I have some in my stash and your scarf looks awesome (ans I know how soft this stuff is) :)

    thanks!! I'm using a size 5 circular needle to knit my scarf (I prefer to use circulars over straight, I find them more comfortable)
