I have now been knitting for eight and a half weeks. I told you I was new to it! In that time, I have finished 7 projects. Not bad, right?
Two garter stitch scarves, two simple hats, 1 robot hat, 1 felted water bottle cozy, and a lace scarf that has taken me 3 of those 8 1/2 weeks.
It is this project I am most proud of. It’s my first attempt at lace and I think I did pretty darn well! The yarn was a gift from my friend Jenny. I made the scarf for Emelia’s birthday. She’s the teenage daughter of some family friends. I’ll give it to her in 3 days on the 4th of July. Teenagers can be picky, but I think she’ll like it.
My next project will be a pink capelet for my Grandma’s birthday. I have to finish it by the beginning of August. I love having set goals like this and I love giving out my projects even more.
