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.

Shirley Ujest, are you an SDMB member? Your screen-name looks familiar. I mostly lurk over there.

Email sent to you Stringy!

For the scarf, I used size 25 knitting needles. My husband says it looks like I'm knitting with telephone poles.

After I punt the children off to school today, I'm off to either Michael's or Joann's to jones about yarns.

w00t!


Knitting is cheaper than cocaine, right?

Yeah my mum once told me I'd save money if I'd stop crafting and start drugs, but she'd be sad because she'd lose a lot of fun projects that she gets ::cough cough:: steals ::cough cough:: from me.

Beautiful 1st scarf, mine also had a huge bunch of holes and was oddly shaped, but then again I was knitting on stage...

I think the only difference between cocaine and knitting is that knitting is legal.

I just bought new knitting needles and some more yarn.

I can say no to drugs, but not purty yarns.
