Saturday Snapshot: Knitting Project

I have recently (very recently) learned how to knit.  Some of the credit goes to Robin McKinley, who waxes on about yarn occasionally on her blog, and Jessica Day George, whose book Princess of the Midnight Ball featured a hero who knits.  Mostly, though, it’s because of a friend who kindly taught me the basics.  Last weekend we had a “knitting and watch Jane Austen movies” get-together. 🙂

So I bought pretty yarn and knitting needles, and have started a scarf–because it seemed like the simplest of projects to begin with!

  1. What a fun day! The colors of your scarf are so pretty. You’re doing a great job! I can do the basics with knitting and crocheting and have made a ton a scarves and a few baby blankets. It’s very relaxing but I haven’t cared to tackle tougher projects yet. I can’t wait to see what else you make!

  2. Oh, I am so happy to see someone else posting knitting photos. Was the Jane Austen movie Emma? I have special memories of that movie, as I watched it while in the early stages of labour.

  3. I’m a beginning knitter too! Scarves are just where I’m at … maybe a baby blanket next …gotta keep it simple still! That teal yarn is lovely with the white!

  4. Oh, knitting is one of my favorite hobbies. It’s soothing, a stress reliever, and there’s a great sense of accomplishment in the end. I also love that I can watch movies or follow my baseball games while making Christmas gifts for the family. 😀
