Take Out the U from the UFO -- I've FINISHED Something
Hooray! I have finished my first knitted object since my college days when I knit a blue vest (probably out of acrylic yarn) for my then-boyfriend. I worked really hard on that vest. When he opened up the package that I had wrapped so carefully, he made that face that people make when you give them something and they hate it. To be fair, I did not know about gauge then, so it was probably off in size. But still, my heart was in the right place. Anyway, I ditched him not too long after that. Hear more about it in Episode 2 of my podcast, Knitlark Lane, knitlarklane.libsyn.com.
If you get a chance, leave a comment to tell me about someone who was not appreciative of your gift that was knitted or crocheted with love.
But now I have finished my Noro Seed Stitch Scarf. I started with something I could Knit With No Mind . . . in the car . . . anywhere. I also tried to pick something that would not be overwhelming for an Advanced Beginner knitter like me. So, it was (Cast on 21, k1,p1 to end, Repeat. )
My big question is SHOULD I BLOCK THIS? and IF SO, HOW DO I DO THAT?
Here are some pictures. I am SO proud!
