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.
