I will make a scarf!

Cable Knit Scarf, originally uploaded by AllThingsLovely.

That sentence was both exclamative and declarative, in case you were wondering.

I chose this pattern from All Things Lovely, and at lunch today I bought some lovely blue yarn from a store called Sheepish. Sheepish! Doesn’t that scream adorable, soft and cuddly?! This scarf is going to be AWESOME. No, it’s not cheaper than buying a scarf from Target, and yes, I already have a bazillion scarves, but this one I am going to knit, all on my own, start to finish, no giving up. SO THERE.

    Congratulations! if the pattern doesn’t already tell you, garter stitch the edges so the sides won’t curl up.

  2. That pattern looks gorgeous. Knitting a scarf is such an accomplishment (total bragging rights!) and not as time-consuming as you’d think. Find a friend to knit with, or watch a movie as you knit, and the time will fly by. Be extra careful if you pick to watch a movie, though – if you get too engrossed in the plot, you might end up dropping stitches. 🙂
