What? Only two pics?, that is so un-us whom usually like to flood your feed with pictures. Last Friday I had to go to the hospital due to a small infection in my scalp, I won’t enter into details (don’t worry!), but I ended with a meshed cap in my head. Although my (kind) mother-in-law insisted on saying that I looked like a 20s girl with a white hat, I was not in the best mood to take pictures of my head to remember.
That horrible cap prevented me to leave the house during the complete weekend, so instead I have been both relaxing (aka taking my meds) and re-starting my old knitting project. I think it all began 2 years ago when I promised Dani that I would make him a warm scarf for that same winter, as you can easily guess he was scarf-less that winter and still is (well, kinda, he still has his old one).
One day our cousin-in-law, who is a very talented crafter, recommended me to give it another chance, starting with bigger needles that should be easy to not lose count and knit. As a result I got new brand wooden number 12 needles (fancy! my old ones were plastic) and thicker wool.
After finishing the first wool ball I think she is right, it is much easier! The downside of this is that Dani doesn’t like the look of that bigger knots for him, so I will be keeping this one for me and I promise there will be a second one. As I already have a couple of regular scarfs which I like, I think I will make this one an Infinity scarf. I heard it is quite easy to knit the two sides together (isn’t it?). Wish me luck!
Do you have any knitting tips for beginners? Let’s fly our scarfs up to the higher high, shall we?
This pictures got me in a better shape than I have been this weekend, no horrible hospital caps in sight. Only a big big smile to fly that scarfs up high!
