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. :)
