I have loved making this scarf – I know it was simple and as basic as you could get – but I found it very therapeutic and by the time I reached the end I felt confident enough that the prospect of trying something more complex next time isn’t horrifying.
The scariest part of this project was joining in new balls of wool – I didn’t even have a clue where to start. I asked Twitter and there was an even split between suggesting I tied the two yarns together and knitting the knew yarn in.
I opted to knit it in for this project – next time I might try tying them together just so I can see which tactic I prefer.
I’m really pleased that I finished my project and I have already packaged up the finished product and sent it to my big sister.
Not just because I think the colour will suit her but because she too is knitting a scarf… And has been knitting that same scarf for the last 27 years. Apparently she is almost at the point of casting off but who knows when that will happen – so I sent her my finished one to keep her warm in the mean time.
Because that’s what nice baby sisters do 😉
I can’t thank Make It Coats UK enough for helping me pluck up the courage to pick up some knitting needles – and I’m super excited to see what is coming up next. And how well I can cope when I have to do more than one type of stitch 😉
