Knitting Project: The Ridiculously Long Red Scarf

My dear friend is off to the Windy City for a whole school year. She earned a Senior Fellowship (capped, because it is a BIG DEAL) and will be enduring a Chicago winter away from Charlottesville.

I couldn’t send her off unprepared, so I spent weeks crafting a ridiculously long, thick red scarf to keep her warm while she’s away.

All you seasoned knitters may scoff at this beginners’ project, but hey, I just taught myself to knit a little less than a year ago and so I’m rather proud when I manage to finish anything.

Family and friends be warned – you’re likely to get a rectangle-shaped, yarn-made item for the holidays.

See? I do more than bake pies.

For a real blog with real knitting projects for those who truly know their knit from their purl (um, and that other stuff I haven’t mastered yet) check out the Needle Lady Blog. Tell them I sent you.

    Great job on the scarf!

    Are you on Ravelry? If not, you need to be! It is kind of like Facebook for knitters. Great place to get advice and ideas, find patterns (lots for free), network, waste time, and see other people’s WIPs, UFOs, and FOs.
