Knitting 101

I've always been a crafty person. I learned how to cross-stitch in elementary school, and followed with needlepoint, then later on scrapbooking and quilting. But, I tend to start projects and not finish them. I have a whole bedroom exclusively for crafting. It's full of unfinished projects. So, when my mom offered to teach me how to knit, I was hesitant at first. I felt that I already had enough crafts on my plate. But I went for it, and through some ripped out rows and starting over I finally finished my first project, a scarf. Not the prettiest scarf but it's a start.

Inspired by my mom and my friend Erika, I decided to make another project. It was way more fun. It's a tea cozy crown (aka knit cap) that I made for my friend's baby.

I found the pattern in my new knitting book, Charmed Knits: Projects for Fans of Harry Potter.

Wow, I knew you were crafty but had no idea of the breadth of your talents. One question, is there really a need for scarves in PHX?

Justin - Not really a need but you can still wear them! They do make great gifts for people not in Arizona though. :)
