The end that I started is knit way tighter than the rest and won't lay as square. It took me a few rows to relax the tension and get into a rhythm.
This is the scarf I made my brother for our buy-nothing Christmas.
Now I'm working on a rug for myself with the cheap yarn I bought for practice. It involves 28 skinny garter stitch strips sewn together. Pattern from The Knitted Rug.
