scarf knitting 101

Another non-reading or beading post:

My grandma taught me how to knit a LONG time ago. I tried to make a scarf. But it was too tedious so I gave up. Hopefully this does not happen again.

After two knitting lessons I am well on my way to making a scarf. Now that I can knit AND purl (is that how you spell it?), I am really enjoying knitting.

I think I might still like crochet better, but that may be only because I have more experience with crochet.

As you can (hopefully) see in the picture to the right, I'm using a yarn that changes colours throughout. In "my heart of hearts" as Bronwen likes to say, I have ALWAYS wanted to make something with yarn like this.

I've only been working on this for a few hours, so I'm not sure how long this will take me. I still need to focus with this "pattern" because I have to switch between knitting and my plans for wine drinking and knitting tomorrow night should be interesting.


  1. I'm so proud of you doing all these things! I always new you had a creative side because as a little girl you could go to your room and make something or draw or just be able to keep yourself entertained by doing something. Way to go.

  2. Wow-that looks awesome! I'm going to go hide mine now before you come over.

  3. Thanks!!

    There is no need to hide yours Marcia!!

  4. In case you didn't know, the most amazing site for fibre arts is Ravelry! (and yes you spelled purl correctly).
