So much yarn. . .
Here is the story: I had a pattern for a scarf. Great pattern. There were 4 stitch combinations: brick, block, moss, and eyelet. I had a wonderfully soft skein of Berroco's Comfort. Perfect. When I finished the scarf, it was about 30 inches long. That is not very long in scarf world. It lay in the drawer for months. The other day I had a light bulb moment: Sew it into a circle for a cowl! I added one twist and it drapes so pretty like in the picture. I am going to make another just like it - only this time on purpose!
A few years back, knitting became a simple craft that became a passion. From scarves to much more complicated patterns, knitting is a way to decompress after a day at work, a way to express my creative side, and a way to give part of myself through knitted gifts. I hope you enjoy this blog!
