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.
