Saturday Snapshot: Scarf Success

A month or so ago I mentioned my new hobby of knitting.  I thought today I’d share my recently-finished scarf.  This was my first real project, and while it’s not perfect, it is fun to be able to see how my knitting improved from one end of the scarf to the other.

Scarf

It’s hard to tell here, but it’s about six feet long–I calculated how long to make it by measuring against another scarf, and it came out just the right length to reach to my waist when I wear it.

I have to say, this is the least time-intensive hobby I’ve ever had, since I only do it while I’m watching TV, or other things I would have been doing anyway. 🙂

    Wow – great first project! You really did a terrific job! I enjoy knitting while watching TV too but haven’t done much of it lately. I need to get back to it.

    I took up knitting a few years ago in my 20s and I love it. I’m still making fantastic rectangles of one sort or another. I’ve tried my hand at gloves and sweaters, etc. But I enjoy my rectangles.

  4. Congrats Cheryl – nice job and enjoy your new hobby.

    It looks very well done, not like a beginner’s project at all. What are you going to try next?
