Revisiting my youth

When I was much younger, I did a bit of knitting. I really enjoyed it, but I didn't pursue it very far, since I was young and pretty broke most of the time. ;) Lately, though, I've been seeing more and more knitting online, and it's been very tempting to begin again. I resisted at first, but I've given in.

What spurred this change of heart? My sister gave me a fun scarf — all ruffles — in shades of grey and white, in August and I loved it; it will look wonderful with my red coat this winter. I found some similar yarn and made myself another, this time in royal blue, turquoise, and a sort of greyish olive. I finished it yesterday, and it was such fun to make that I'm going to make a shawl next! Here's the scarf:

It's about 38" long and very fluffy! It should be lots of fun to wear. :)

  1. The scarf is lovely! I've been resisting the knitting bug too. Just too many fun crafts to work on. It cracks me up to go to quilt guild and see so many people knitting there :-)

  2. Is that the Potato Chip scarf? I've seen them, but I've never bothered to look at the pattern to see what's involved. I've noticed a lot more people knitting lately - and I picked mine up again in the last couple of years.

  3. No, Louise, this isn't the Potato Chip scarf — I've never heard of that one. LOL! This is the "Ondas" scarf, though the yarn is a different brand.
