So this is what it looks like when you take up knitting again. I found some knitting tutorials on Youtube to figure out the knit stitch and worked some rows on this scarf. After awhile, I wondered why it was so much wider. I counted the loops on the needle and it had ballooned from 16 to 26! So I must have been adding stitches somewhere in the process. I managed to bring it back down to 16.
