Here are some details about my project:
Category Knitting
Nerves of Steel on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? King Cole Moorland Aran, 75% acrylic 25% wool

What are you most proud of? I'm really pleased I stuck with this. After a shaky start and many 30 sec rewinds, I have got the hang of the stitch and I'm really enjoying knitting the scarf.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch Nancy do this before you even pick up your needles! Then watch as you knit till you really get the hang of it.

Nice yarn choice and excellent advise about learning brioche.

You know, I haven't used anything with acrylic in for such a long time, and I would never dream of using it for a garment. But for a scarf which will be next to the skin, this yarn felt nice. I just want to say how much watching you has helped! I have almost worn out the rewind button, it has been very useful. I'm dying to try the two colour brioche but I know I need to get really good at this first. Thanks Nancy

On the second photo, I am following Nancy's excellent demo of the Italian bind off. My cat Toby is helping me! That's the top down Icelandic sweater I'm wearing, made from another Craftsy class I love
