Hurray! I can knit

I am so glad I can knit, thanks to guys who posted some good knitting videos on Youtube. I am knitting my first project – A scarf (neck warmer) for my husband and I am glad it is coming up really nice. 
I am using navy blue colour chunky yarn and 5.5mm circular bamboo needles. I casted on 25 stitches which makes it 16cm wide. The pattern I chose is a basic and beautiful garter stitch! 

I finally completed the scarf with little help from my son!

I knitted this neck warmer for my little boy, isn't it nice :)

Here are some of the best videos on youtube for knitting beginners. I taught myself knitting from these videos. All credit goes to the owners of the videos.
