I've kind of always thought that I could teach myself to make anything within the realm of crafty things. Now, after entering the world of knitting, I'm thinking I should revise said thought to "within the realm of paper crafts and sewing." Knitting has proven to be a bit more difficult than I expected. With some lovely yarn I received for Christmas I knitted scarf number 2, which turned out to be too wide. Much, much too wide. I unraveled it and realized that to get good at knitting I must keep trying. Here's the unraveling of the super wide scarf:
Scarf number three, knit with wool yarn, turned out pretty well, though. This one is for my sister, but I will admit that I wore it for three days straight before giving it to her.
p.s. I have used those large-ish wooden needles shown above in all four of my knitting projects. They're great.
