I made something.

20.3.11

As you may know I recently took a knitting lesson to get to grips with the basics - casting on/off, knit stitch, purl stitch, and increasing/decreasing. Oh, and changing colours! And it has opened up a whole new world of wool shopping and little knitting projects.

Since then I have been knitting most evenings and I find it so addictive. Luckily the knitting lessons I had were held at a super cute store and they have bundles of lovely things to buy - plus you can buy online too so I really do find it easy to get carried away.

I found some super chunky wool in one of my favourite colours and got to work on a chunky scarf. I finished it off last night (I stayed up till 1am to get it finished - that's dedication for you!) and have been parading around in it today. 

I feel so proud to have finished something and it's not half bad!

  29. That scarf looks so comfy. You just look so cosy, and the colour is lovely.
    I want one.
    I tried my hand a knitting years ago, when I was younger. My Mum's knitting is amazing, and though the actual knitting (a very basic stitch) is pretty simple, I just couldn't get to grips with the casting on/off etc. Changing colours just blows my mind. Haha.
    Anyway, well done, you seem so proud.
    I can't wait to see more of your creations.

  35. that is a really cute scarf!! i love it! it looks so cozy and warm, i think i might have to get out the knitting needles when it gets a bit cooler (knitting is reserved for when it is cold in Australia) and finish of my jumper and then knit a matching scarf.
