Ta-Da!

Hey look! I knitted a scarf. And it only took me 10 months and 19 days.

I'm not what one would call a quick (swift, rapid, fast) knitter. I'm sure if I tackled anything as complicated as a sweater, entire empires would rise and fall before I finished. But here it is. I'm basking in my sense of accomplishment:



The yarn was all nubby and had bits hanging off it, which was both good and bad. The good thing was that it hid any mistakes, the bad was that I had to pay attention when knitting instead of being able to watch TV speak French to the girls while they folded laundry and put it away. (I can dream, can't I?)





Next project: slippers. They oughta be ready by oh...2012.

  2. Wow, I'm always impressed when people can make some thing wearable out of bits of yarn or big expanses of cloth

  8. Thanks for all the wonderful compliments! I'd knit a scarf for each of you, but I don't know if any of us would live long enough for that to actually happen.

  9. You mentioned slippers. What kind are you doing? (full wrap around?) I can't knit. Wabi Sabi (http://wabi-sabi.ca/) which I get to walk by every day (sometimes twice if I'm taking kids to school) gives me hope.

  11. I love it:)
    And it would take me about 3 years to finish, which is why I bought one from Jen's Etsy shop:)
    I'm good and lazy like that.
