I have always wanted to learn how to knit and searched high and low for friends or family members who were knitters that could share their knowledge with me. No luck. Finally, I said screw it and I taught myself how to do it. I've just completed my first item from a pattern, the Easy Mistake Stitch Scarf from the Purl Bee.



I can not recommend this enough for a beginner. It is an incredibly easy pattern that produces a lovely, soft yet sculptural scarf. I made this scarf in Bernat Alpaca for my husband, and he digs it. Of course, I finished it just in time for the 60 degree weather we're having. The color is a muted brown, to coordinate with his best friend.

Lovely! It looks so soft and warm.
I'm all for teaching yourself to knit, I'm a self-taught knitter and always found it difficult when someone would try to teach me something. I find it very amusing because I teach people to knit.
So, are you knit-addicted now?

COMPLETELY! It's ridiculous how fast I became addicted to it.
