A little knitting

I almost forgot to post about the "scarf" I knitted. It's just a practice piece and I'm not sure it actually classifies as a scarf , I really didn't want it very long since I only wanted it to go around my neck and tuck into the top of my coat. I didn't want it flying in the wind and I don't need any extra padding anywhere on this body, especially in front, LOL! Here's a picture;
For some reason it didn't photograph well. I decided to join a knitting "Meet-up" to get some tips, pointers and inspiration from other knitters in my area. They meet every Monday night at a Starbucks, I won't make every meeting but will go when I can. Everyone is friendly and very helpful. It's a low key group, I look forward to learning more about knitting. Next, I'm going to knit a couple dish clothes just to get a feel for some different stitches and I've got to work on getting a good even tension in my stitches. So, I'll post those whenever I get them done, so more to come.
UPDATE: I was able to take a picture that shows a little better detail.
(All in learning how to use the setting on a camera, LOL!)

Nice scarf, I am sure it will serve it's purpose. I am going to my first Sewing Meet-up in NYC (if it ever stops snowing). The first one was cancelled due to snow & yes it's snowin' again. lol
