Progress, and first post

Well I started my Irish Hiking Scarf on a 7 hour bus trip back on June 7th, on the way to Saint John, New Brunswick. On the way back, I took this picture showing the progress I had made:

I hadn't worked on it much since then, as I do most of my knitting while watching TV or movies, and I haven't been doing much of that. I worked on it a lot today though, and these pictures show my progress so far (click for larger pics):

I'm using Paton's Shetland Chunky, in a colour that's been discontinued. I bought 7 balls of it for $2 each at my LYS. I'm on my second ball now. I'm not sure if it's a good yarn for this kind of pattern, but I like it so far. I will definitely be making more of these.

Progess!!! Look, it's so much longer now! I'm about halfway there. Not bad since my sister's birhtday isn't until November. Hahaha.

I also used the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern for this and borrowed the ribbon idea from a Knitty Coffeeshop discussion on Margaret Nicole New York clutches. I'm using it for my new cell phone - it keeps it from getting all scratched up when i throw my keys in the purse. Plus, it makes it so much easier to find! It also fits my Canon SD300 camera. Pretty nice for those times I want to carry the camera in my purse or pocket.
