Knitting Today

I've been trying to get back into knitting a little bit. Here's a scarf I started today. It took me an hour to knit about 20 rows. (Seriously, are there really people out there who can knit a pair of socks in an evening?)

This is a "Chevron Seed" motif. Maybe you can see the zig-zags. I made some mistakes. Maybe it isn't such a good idea to listen to music while knitting--throws me off count!

Actually, this looks better in real life. I think I photographed the wrong side, LOL!

Anyway, I'm not doing this motif for the whole scarf. I'm going to switch to something else for the next 20 rows. I have an old book by Reader's Digest that is a big volume about crafting, with sections on knitting and crochet stitches. I just have to find ones that will fit with the 24 stitches across I've chosen for this. It's not a wide scarf, so it will probably be a gift for a child. I'm mostly doing it to practice.

Next blog post I'll try to show one of my sewing projects.
