A Knitter I Am Not…Yet
I finished my second scarf ever.
It isn’t much better than the first.
This was the first one I did two winters ago. It is as crooked as can be, and I haven’t decided yet if I will rip it out and start over, or keep it as a ‘see how far you’ve come’ relic.
As you can see, I am far from an evolved homemaker in which I can knit in my spare time while educating two children and keeping a house running all while pursuing my own passions like gardening, knitting, writing, sewing etc. My first scarf was two stinkin’ years ago circa January and my second attempt I finished a week ago. And it is crooked too. With a gaping hole to boot.
I didn’t bother to sew the ends into the scarf, due to the fact I am fairly certain I will dissect this thing and begin again. It is unfortunate, seeing as how it will probably be another two years until I finish it the second time.
Which is a total bummer, because as you can see the second half was a perfectly knitted scarf! It is the first half that was less than extraordinary!
Just for an FYI, the best site I have found for beginning knitters was sent to me by my mother-in-law. You can find lots of information and videos to boot at Knitting Help.
Evidently, I am continuing to evolve…if ever so slowly…into an urban homesteader, knitter, mother, wife, sewer, handy gal, crafter, homeschooler, chef, baker, author, and whatever other bee in my bonnet may arise in the future, kind of homemaker. I am so O.K. with it at this moment. I, for once, am beginning to enjoy the journey!
