I am going to Knit a Scarf!

IMG_0201I have knit in the past but never anything to the extent of a Scarf. My grandma actually taught me how to crochet after I rummaged through her car and found  half crocheted hat. At the time I was ten and I’m pretty sure the thought of her attempting to teach a ten year old how to crochet was mind boggling. Anywho, she did and I wasn’t very good at it. Everything I crocheted turned into a triangle or teardrop shape as I always left off one stitch at the end, resulting in numerous dropped stitches. I called them all christmas ornaments because I had no other use for mini oddly shaped teardrops.

I gave up crocheting because I could never get an even shape. I moved onto knitting. Knitting always gave me the perfectly shaped piece but without being able to “triple crochet” it always took much longer. In return, I always quit the knit projects I started. I am finally going to create a scarf. It is just a little side project for a few minutes before bed or in passing periods. The thought of actually wearing something that I knot satisfies me more than purchasing something hand knit. Lets see what happens…

    Knitting would be a great outlet for your creativity because it is very portable and would compliment your studies. It is very fun and satisfying!

      That actually sounds perfect for me at the moment! It seems super relaxing at the moment.

    I knit and crochet scarves. What I have learned is to use the biggest needles you can find and make the scarf skinny, and long. These things have always given me the best results. I think it’s a great idea and a great skill to have.

      YES! Big needles = speedier process. Also a thicker yarn to fill in the thick needle holes 🙂
      I will give this a go. xoxo Drew

    Hi Scott, Homespun has a great yarn called Thick N Quick that is supper soft and works up real fast. Just use large needles and you will have your beautiful scarf made in a blink of an eye. Please show pictures dear when you can. So many of us love seeing what you do. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
