Christmas Crafting: Knitted Scarf



I'm sad that I didn't get to make more presents for people this Christmas, but I did my best - I still made fudge, peppermint creams and a phone sock for Ben, but I hope to do better next year.


I did made a scarf over the holidays for my godfather - 10mm needles with Rowan Wool (extremely soft and squishy). The pattern is pretty simple for beginners, and grows like a weed.


As you can see here.

Knitting is something I've been doing for a while, but I wouldn't be able to stick it out for anything larger than a scarf or hat/gloves - jumpers, quite honestly, sound like a nightmare.

    1. Thank you! I've always wanted to try crocheting. I'll do better on the homemade front next year, I swear. :P

  2. My problem is I never start making Christmas presents until the week before! I'm still working on that last pair of mukluks. :P

    I wish we could get Rowan yarn over here - it looks beautiful! I think it's the sewing together that scares me away from making an actual sweater. Next month, a class on how to make mittens. Kind of excited to learn how to knit on four needles. :o)

    1. Urgh, I'm a terminal procrastinator; I always start projects too late and put off finishing them! I'm lucky in that this scarf was a doddle to do, otherwise it wouldn't have.

      Rowan yarn is pricy, but gorgeous stuff - so soft and warm! Good luck with your mittens. :)
