Thanks for stopping by. I am committed to blogging regularly for the month of December, no more once a week for me. The semester is winding down and I do have lots of grading but I have lots of things I want to make too, including some knitted items!
While I was in Buffalo, I grabbed a pair of my mom's knitting needles and practiced a little using some Wool Ease yarn I purchased and left there about 6 years ago before I moved to Florida. I casted on, watched some YouTube videos to refresh my memory and got to work.
The needles were quite large, size 1 but they were great for this thick yarn.
My goal was to practice knitting and maybe end of with something at the end. I went until the yarn was near the end. Since it was not enough yarn for a full scarf, I decided to end it with a cowl.
Just a few dropped stitches but they are all well hidden when it is worn.
So, I officially made my first knitted item. One of my friends at work said now i need to start another blog since this one is the Florida Crochet Garden. I told her not to worry, many other crochets knit too and won't mind a little knit here and there (I hope!). Crochet is still my first love :)
Have a fabulous Friday!!
