But I also knit! I learned a few years ago when my friend Ellie's aunt taught me. We go to her house every Tuesday and have dinner and chat, and sometimes work on craft projects. Now that it's cold, we've all been knitting again, so I started on a scarf.
I first saw the Honey Cowl on Tasia's blog and thought that it was gorgeous, and easy enough for me to do. So far, I've only made a few hats! I haven't tried anything more complicated than that.
It took a few tries to get started because my scarf kept getting a twist in it. I ripped it out and started again, but I got another twist! I had to have my friend start it for me since I had no idea what I was doing wrong. I thought I had made sure everything was straight!
Knitting is nice because you can do it sitting in front of the TV, on the bus, talking to a friend, etc. It's totally portable, unlike sewing. As much as I'd like to bring my machine to work and sew during my lunch break, I don't think that will ever happen.
I'm not very far on my scarf yet, but here's what I have so far.
It seems like a lot of sewing bloggers are also getting into knitting. Have you been bitten by the knitting bug?
