Hi new friends,

I'm Carolyn, and I live in St. Louis MO. I'm a divorced 62-year-old and am have just returned to knitting after 45 years! I never was an accomplished knitter but am determined to learn so I can make some of the beautiful garments, etc. I see in my favorite knit shop. I'm away from home right now with some #7 needles and some pretty red yarn (it looks like kind of an average size and it's a blend of some kind) that I'd like to make into a scarf to wear to keep warm this winter. Does anyone have an idea for a simple pattern I could work on this weekend?

Knit the first 10 rows for bottom boarder and knit 5 stitches for the side boarders, do a stocking stitch in the center to the lat 5 stitches knit those stitches, turn knit the first 5 stitches purl to the last 5 knit those.Makes a real pretty scarf if it is in multi-colors. Have fun knitting!!! Tena Britts

Hi new friends, My name is Tena, I live in St. Louis, Mo,I have been married almost 31 years.I was taught by my sisters to knit, Mom taught me to crochet.I have made a few afghans usually it take me a minute to finish one. Having two jobs dosen't give alot of time to work on one, so they have to be quick and easy.

Hi, Im new to this site. I taught myself to knit when I was 9 by using the encloypedia. Took me 2 weeks to figure out how to cast on! I do enjoy knitting during the winter months. I am always looking for scarf patterns that a little bit new and edgy but not so complicated that I cant put down and pick up again without giving it a lot of thought (Im much older than 9 now :) If you have any such patterns, feel free to post. Thank you.
