Garter Stitch Scarf

I've been an English style knitter since I learned to knit. For me it was fun to learn and easy on my hands. As I have been knitting more, I wanted to learn the continental method.
I have a soft spot for stranded knitting and as such, knowing continental knitting would make my life easier. I could hold a strand of yarn in each hand instead of overloading my fingers.
There's a great tutorial for continental knitting here if you are interested. This is the site that helped me to learn to knit.
This scarf has no gauge. Any type of yarn and any type of needle will work. The basic garter stitch pattern is all you need to know; and that's just knit every row.
I used one of those bumpy types of yarn. It's got several thick threads of multiple colors with one thin white thread wrapped around it. I've always like these types of yarns; but, once I get it home I never know what to do with it.
This scarf is much like this one I knitted earlier. The pink one has since unraveled unfortunately.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!
