Somewhere along my blogging life, individuals have ignited a new spark in my life. Thanks to islandsparrow for encouraging me to think out of the box.
Earlier this fall I learned to crochet an edge around a baby blanket, with the help of many friends and then I became inspired to trying knitting again. So I ran out to Maries Wool Shop and said, I needed something for Dummies and she came up with the largest needles I've ever seen, and some heavy knitting yarn and a simple pattern.
As Judy posted awhile back about her trip up the Coquihalla, she was crocheting a scarf, while her husband was trying to concentrate on driving through the wintry road conditions.
We passed through the same highway last week on our trip to Sun Peaks, and Judy, I did the same thing...I knit while he drove, because that way I wouldn't always be on the defensive, telling him to slow down, but rather focused on making my first Stockinette Stitches.
Wow, it didn't take long and I was almost finished...Here's my first project.
Big fat needles and big fat wool with a bit of texture. It knit up in a jiffy for me!
And here is the end result. Today I'm going to give it to my daughter for her birthday.
I thought this would be just the right touch to complement her new black jacket.
So I thought I would try it on and sure enough it fit perfect. Does anyone want to get their pedometers and go for a walk? I thought that maybe this image, might start a new fashion trend.
Tukes and pedometers. Let me know if you need one. Maybe on one of these cold days we could all walk and then knit up a tuke while we visit and catch up.
There's always hope for those of us who do not feel we are crafty.
