Scarf in Progress


I've nearly finished my scarf. I did loads of knitting over the weekend, and I'm really impressed with how it's coming along. I think that I needed a simple project like this to rekindle my love of knitting. My grandmother how to knit when I was young, but I never made much progress with my skills beyond the basic knit and purl. She would just send me off with yarn and needles to keep me quiet - I'm sure that she's still got my little unfinished squares of garter stitch stowed away somewhere. I just love the quiet zen of knitting, it's really meditative for me - the sound of clicking needles and the mantra of knit, knit, purl, purl repeating in my head. So, now I'm off to make a cup of tea and finish off my scarf.

I hope you had a relaxing evening, I said I was going to but the dirty kitchen + thoughts about the move kept me from sitting down + relaxing. When I get a moment (HA!) I'm going to start on a new scarf + maybe it will be ready by NEXT winter. The best laid plans of mice + (wo)men.
