Gift crafting: I’ve learned to knit

Smitten with Knittin'

Every night I work on one of these while we watch TV or a movie. My grandma taught me how to knit many, many years ago and I pretty much promptly abandoned any project I started. I tried again in college to no avail. I was determined, though, to make this year the year I started and completed knitting projects. Someday I aspire to make sweaters but for now I’m happy with scarves.

Two of these are finished–the blue one on the left and the red one in the middle. The silvery one, the one where I tried to create a pattern, is a little over halfway, and the skinny one on the edge is about a third of the way done. Now if I can only finish them in time for the holiday, I’ll be a happy camper.

  1. I love to knit! I taught myself out of “Stitch ‘n’ Bitch.” I also make scarves, but I think they’re getting sort of boring, so mittens are next, then a bag, then a sweater. Of course, the sweater won’t probably happen until next year, but hey, it’s a plan…
