A Lace Stitched Knit Green Scarf

| 4 Comments

Almost exactly a year ago I got it into my head that I wanted to learn how to knit. I found a pattern for this beautiful green cameo scarf and well…of course I wanted to make one. {don’t you? It is absolutely gorgeous!}

Anyhow, after a few failed attempts, and the discovery that you can no longer buy the specified yarn that the pattern calls for (and the yarn I had in my stash didn’t work at all. sniff. sniff.)—I was kind of discouraged and gave up on it being my very first knitting project. Though I gave up on that particular project I did spend a lot of time this last year practicing knitting other things like slippers, flowers, and tons of dishcloths…and just a few weeks ago I pulled out the pattern again, bought some Wool-Ease Chunky Yarn, and finally got to make my scarf:

I promptly gave it away to my mother-in-law for Christmas…so I am going to have to make another one, but I am SO pleased with the way it turned out. It is probably one of the prettiest scarfs EVER! {ha ha. of course once again I think I might be biased.}

  3. Last Christmas, me and hubby gave his grandmother a gray scarf and she really likes it. I am pretty sure that she could use it on any of her church activities. :) I think we need to give my mother a green scarf too
