I feel bad that I have been away from the page for so long, but life has gotten busy in all realms of realness and I had matters to attend. We are very excited to be leaving on our epic family adventure over Labor Day weekend…..all that info and itinerary in a future post 🙂
In preparation for our journey, I am also getting ready for my long car trip activity of choice – KNITTING! Last year, on our trip to the Black Hills, I knit my first piece. A super comfy cozy cowl scarf.
I have crocheted for years; hats, scarves, baby blankets. One day while home ill, I decided to teach myself to knit. This is the video I used:
I really liked her first 6 videos, they got me on the right track for a simple scarf as my first project!
I have been getting stuff ready for the kids and hadn’t thought about a project for me until……Harry Potter inspired Merino colors!! (gifts of yarn are always welcome 🙂 )
After some agonizing, as I could only afford 1 skein….I decided on the Incendio ( The Fire Spell)
I plan on using this cowl pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honey-cowl
I am pretty excited!! Excited for vacation….Excited for another great homemade fashion piece!
Never be afraid to TEACH YOURSELF something new!
