I finished my first ever knitted scarf on Friday and here it is!
I'm quite pleased with it, despite restarting several times and the few obvious mistakes when I made it up. I feel like I've learnt a lot, namely how to knit and purl and cast on and off as well as how to read a simple pattern.
Next knitting project is in the wings... another scarf! I'm just making my final decision on what to make and then I'll need to buy the appropriate needles.
In the meantime, the jacket is nearly done. I have four more buttonholes to do and then a whole load of buttons to sew on. Then all I have to do is threaten it with an iron and I'm done!
