For a couple months, I knitted away. I had a little shopping bag with my project and wherever I went, the bag went.
I signed up on Ravelry.
I bought a pair of my own wooden circular needles.
I bought my first skeins of yarn ever.
For a few months, I was hoooked.
Then my love of knitting fizzled.
Looking back I don't know what happened really, but eventually my two bags of unfinished scarves was stuck in the corner of my bedroom behind a chair.
Then came this Christmas break.
With the frigid temp, the Christmas snow, and the roaring fireplace, I began to have an itch to knit. I got out the bags and prepared to google some knitting videos to remind me how to knit. But, lo and behold, I remembered how. Knitting must be like riding a bike...once you learn you can't forget cause as soon as I put the needles in my hand my finger wrapped the yarn and away I went. Knit 5, purl 5, row after row until finally I had this...
|Don't mind the strands at the end...I did weave them in!|
Can you even believe it?
I knitted a real scarf.
One that I can really wrap around my neck.
I am so stinking proud of myself that I just had to share my success with you. So now I'm off and knitting that second scarf I had started last year. Then I guess it's back to the craft store for some new yarn for my next project whatever that may be.
Hmmm, what do you knit after you knit scarves?
I wonder if a hat would be too much??
