spiral scarf beginnings

pattern: spiral scarf
yarn: artyarns supermerino, colour 115 (persimmon)
needles: size 6 susan bates circulars (two circulars when it gets cozy)

the 1x1 ribbing goes slowly, but i like the vortex-like momentum of working inwards, so you're ever decreasing and eating up more stitches on the needles.

can i confess my complete and utter distrust of dpns? i have no patience for those tips that keep slipping and dropping stitches at the ends...

knitting from the outside in really tripped me up, especially late last night. i must have cast on and picked up stitches about five times. now i know that i pick up with right side showing, and no matter how wonky it looks, once you twist it into the correct orientation, the sides should align and be in correct facings.

Did you try knitting the hexagons with two circular needles?
