Knitting and Modeling a Wonderful Pair

I fell in love with knitting years ago when a super fantastic lady taught me how. The thing is I have never been very good at is finishing my projects. There for I would forget where I was or how to even do it! Well this year no more! (hand over heart) I promise to always finish my knitting project before I move on the next super cute one! To make it easier on myself I'm only going to be making scarves for the next little bit. The catch is to make myself learn more, each scarf has to contain at least one stitch I don't know how to do. So I can learn how to do it! I think this sounds like a wonderful plan. So all my family and friends be warned, next year for Christmas everyone is getting scarves!

So the first scarf I did comes from the purl bee and it is their "Eleventh Hour Scarf" they say you could make it in about a movie. For me it would have taken about 10 movies to get it done. And the other thing is that I was so excited to get started that I just used the biggest knitting needles I had and I really don't think they were the right size so my scarf doesn't look as fluffy and cute as their. That is one of the reasons I thought it best that the scarf went to Mike cause in the end it looked more like a man's scarf.

 Mike just loved it and he was even more excited to model it for you! You can tell by the look on his face.

Wrapped up in Love Can you not see the joy in his eyes
Now off to pinterest to find my next wonderful scarf.

Oh, on a little bit of a side note  there is one more picture of Mike all wrapped up in love but I decided to use it as my picture of the day so if you want to go check it out at the top of my blog you will see a little button that says "One Year of Photos" click on it and it will take you to my 365 photo project.

  1. I have to admit, knitting intimidates me a bit. I have an unfinished knit scarf that is waiting to be finished....maybe I should slap on a movie, or three-heehee, and finish it... You have inspired me!
