Doesn't everyone start with a scarf? This was the first item I ever knitted! It took me all summer knitting this red seed stitch scarf for my son. But I am so proud of it! Why did I choose a seed-stitch project for my first one? I have no idea. I guess I just thought it looked cool. And it does! My husband calls my son "The Red Baron" when he wears it.
