Simple Gifts

In spring my friend M taught me how to knit. I've always been intimidated by it but as it turns out it's not too hard. It's quickly become my favorite thing to do while riding in the car, or during downtime when I have to sit still somewhere for long periods of time (like church).

I just finished my first knitting project ever, something I nicknamed "The Fisherman's Scarf." This scarf was really started as something that was meant to help me drill in the idea of Knitting and Purling - simple scarves are a good way to start!

As soon as I had finished it and blocked it, I wrapped it up - it's a gift for a friend who is moving away.

  1. lovely! i'm knitting right now! i have been trying to figure out my knitting machine, but it's being stupid, so i decided to hand knit for now instead. much better! i used to knit in church, until an old gentleman asked me to stop. i guess he thought i was being a bad example? really annoyed me, because i always concentrate the best when i'm working with my hands.

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! (: Wow, so you're me in my next life: a future primary school teacher AND a redhead. I envy redheads. You're all so damn gorgeous! It's not fair!

    As for the english/german ... well, I'm pretty sure my english sometimes acts like a shabby boat at sea, but hey. At least. I'm trying. Applause for that. ;)

  5. Oh Elizabeth, this is so lovely, I mean everything, the scarf, the packaging, the story behind it. Things like this touch me so much. Just the image of the note tag uplifted me...something I really needed about now. Thank you for sharing this.
