I think it is about time I shared my first completed knitting project of 2012. I don't know why it has taken me so long to share.
Technically I finished knitting this project in October of 2011. However, it took me 4-months after that to take the time to weave in all the yarn ends.
The husband wanted a "smooth" scarf. No ridges. No bumps. He also did not want anything bulky. He really liked the look of stockinette stitches. Since a scarf made totally out of stockinette likes to curl, and I didn't want to have to knit in the round, I decided to knit the scarf using 1 x 1 rib. Fake stockinette if you will.
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted in "Mushroom" and "Black"
Needle: US 7 (4.5mm)
Finished: 10/23/11 (all knitting done)
Officially Finished: 2/14/12 (all ends finally weaved in)

The husband's "smooth" scarf
Cast on 46 stitches.
Knit 1 x 1 rib (K1, P1) for 20 rows of each color (I counted the cast-on row as 1 row).
Knit the first and last stitch of every row (the beginning of each row will end up having 2 knit stitches).
