everyone makes a mistake

sadly my mistake took me a week to realize that the latest project i was doing (which must remain on the downlow) is altogether too small.
so to make myself feel better i am finally making something for myself.







i am proud of my excellent balling job (teehee i said balling its the cameron and mark beavis and butthead influence i can't help it!)


the pattern for this scarf is rather simple, size 10.5 needles cast on 22 k1 {k2 p2} k1 the nifty thing is that the pattern i copied was slightly wrong as it told me to cast on 20 which doesn't allow the pattern to repeat on the back. as my wise friend jessica taught me i needed to knit into the knit and purl into the purl to allow the ribbing to occur. so anyway notice the nifty ribbing i hope to be done in the next week or so.. and then onto the next big secret project.

the hat and scarf

i made both the hat and scarf with merino hand dyed urugauy wool worsted. the hat was made on circular size 6 105 cast on then K1P1 for 16 rows then much knitting and eventual decreasing. then the big time onto double pointed needles. you can see pics of my great decreasing here.
the scarf was done on #10 needles 32 cast on and then just keep on going.

tho the picture shows me wearing them they were a gift for my amazing boyfriend.

this is my knitting blog...

hello and welcome to my blog. i recently learned how to knit and figured that someone might want to look at what i have done. To date i have completed a hat and two scarves. I feel proud of these esp the hat.. b/c i got to use circular and double pointed needles.

i welcome patterns and ideas for new projects. soon i will post pictures of the first two things i accomplished.
