One of my favorite things to do is knit. I needed a new scarf for the winter (and maybe for a few gifts...) so I got down to business. Why spend $50 on a scarf when you can spend $10 on yarn and a billion hours on working your little fingers to the bone? Just kidding, this one only took me about 6 hours in total or two and a half days worth of television watching and record listening, if you're into conversions.
I'm not going to give you step by step instructions because there's a huge world wide web that already wants to tell you how to knit the fanciest of sweaters. I WILL tell you though, that to cut my work in half and double up on coziness, I took two colors of yarn, tied the ends together, and sort of twisted it into one big yarn as I went. Not ready for that? Here are some great beginner guides.
Do you learn best from an adorable girl wearing snowflake earrings? Then this is your jam.
Do you just comprehend a little bit better when it's British? Try this one.
Do you hate videos and just want to read how to do something in your own voice? Here you go!
*Bookmark that page for later reference anyway. If your experience is anything like mine, you WILL forget how to cast on and bind from time to time. You'll need to jog your memory a little, but will want to skip ahead to the specific... er, obstacle.
Do you already knit? Have you been wanting to learn? I want to start getting into patterns!
