Tagged: Secret Boyfriend Scarf
When I first started to learn knitting, I somehow became confused by a diagram and started doing all of my knit stitches through the back loop. For the first few weeks, as a result, I found purling to be much easier than knitting and assumed everyone who said the opposite must be mental.
My first adult sized knitted garment was knitted to the pattern, despite my gauge being 1st per inch out. I thought that wasn’t enough to make much of a difference to the finished size. It was.
I once steam blocked a partly acrylic scarf that I’d worked furiously to get finished on time, but did it wrong and ended up with unrecoverable scalloped edges and all that work went to waste.
Oh, and I haven’t updated my knitting blog since October. Sorry.
The amount of projects I’ve started lately is beginning to get slightly alarming, but do not be afraid. I’ve now officially run out of yarn money so these will have to keep me going until my birthday at the end of May! Unless anyone wants to send me yarn in return for website design, which I would totally be open to.
Ok, well, two scarves. That’s sort of the same as “many”. Until now I’ve avoided knitting a scarf, though I did come perilously close, but a friend recently got completely overexcited at the realisation that I could make him a Tom Baker scarf and I took the opportunity to cast on for the secret scarf I’ve had queued for boyfriend at the same time.
