1  Just finished my first Muggle project....whew..... in Knitting: Completed Projects by Shirley Ujest on: March 24, 2006 07:51:45 PM
I had been asked since November by this extremely nice guy at our shooting club if I would make him a scarf. He wanted something like cashmere or really soft. Not granny acrylic. Right there, he had me. Oh god, I may be a newbie into this addiction of knitting, but anyone who wants good wool over acrylic knows my number.

I had only just started knitting in September and pooh poohed him until I found the right yarn.  Noro Silk Garden.  45% Silk. 45% Mohair. 5% Lambswool.  Manly colors of brown, gray and shades either side.  It has been a real pleasure to work with this.

I started in January and pretty much frogged it about 5 times and really farked it over after the 5th restart because I was distracted by the TV. Instead of ripping it out again, I went to the knitting store and groveled for help. The Goddesses of Yarn fixed my fark up nicely and I was back in business again. It has been my constant purse companion for over 8 weeks as I do a little every day waiting for my kids to get out of school.

I don't know how to add images here successfully, so I shall link it to my photobucket


  Rolled up.


 unleashed.

I just cast on 200 stitches on circular needles ( 5 or 7, can't remember. sorry. I have a 1 bit memory drive.) and knit the entire thing.  Very meditative.

2  Pretty Pink Fat Knit Scarf. My first effort! Now I'm addicted. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Shirley Ujest on: October 05, 2005 12:34:37 PM

My first scarf! by Shirley Ujest, on Flickr



I made this for my daughter. I've desperately wanted to try knitting and attempts in the past (before pretty yarns) failed miserably.  I don't know exactly why I suddenly 'got' it, but here is my effort.

Yeah, it's not perfect and the tassles are really bad, but my daughter luffs it.


Moral of the story: don't give up and eventually softy purty yarns will be made.
