Knit One, Purl One

Three years ago I picked up knitting. I had several friends who had taught themselves and were creating adorable projects. It looked like fun. So, I watched You Tube videos, looked up simple patterns on-line, picked the absolute easiest one I could find and dove in. It was a scarf. All knit stitch, no purl.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I made it about 4/5 of the way through the project and then three years ago, I put down knitting.

And never picked it up again.

Until last week.

I figured it was time to finish the scarf. So I tried, without taking a refresher course.

It is pretty obvious I needed a refresher course.

But hey, sloppy stitches and widening scarf aside, I finished.

Moral of the story, if you want one... finish what you start seems appropriate. Don't procrastinate, might be better. Persevere? Or something else.

The kids were very interested in my knitting this time around. They want their own scarves. So I'm giving it another go around. This time I've added the purl stitch to my arsenal  which ended up being a lot harder that I think it should have been.

Let's see if I can take my own advice and persevere to finish what I've started, without procrastination??

I'll let you know... hopefully sometime in the next three years.

Happy Weekend Friends.
