Knitting a scarf!

Since my friend Cheryl's visit, I've been back to knitting. She taught me a few things about making mittens and working with the circular needles which made me excited to start knitting again. It also helped that since I was too nauseous to look at a computer screen or focus on a book, I could knit away while listening to mindless history podcasts.

So I made an infinity scarf! I'm very proud on how it turned out. It's my first ever 'bigger than a dishcloth' piece. I somehow managed to twist it with the circular needles but that doesn't matter so much with a scarf. Amy said I should tell everyone I did it intentionally. It's the latest thing in the scarf world!

I dampened the wool in an attempt to stretch it out slightly as it kept rolling into a tube.

Modelling my newest winter scarf! Bring on the cold weather!

Love the scarf. The twist is perfect and the colour is nice too. I am making slippers, you'll get yours at Christmas.
