In addition to making me these awesome Bella mittens, my friend Heather, was also gracious enough to help me with one of my 101 in 1001 goals, and she taught me to knit. A month after learning the basic knit and purl, I reveal to you my very first scarf:
Ribbed Mini Scarf by Nebula Designs (click link for pattern)
I (accidentally) went off pattern, and there are a TON of mistakes, but I’m proud of myself nonetheless and will wear my creation with pride this winter.
I’m so happy to add knitting to my craft repertoire. It’s incredibly relaxing, and I love that I can be productive with my hands while I’m vegging in front of the TV. So friends and family, beware! You may be receiving a scarf instead of a scrapbook for Christmas this year. J
