I made a scarf for my teacher. He lives in Northern California off the grid so I imagine it gets mighty cold. When we were in Volcano I ran out of yarn on the project I brought so I went to the yarn store in Hilo to start another project. I’ll have to go back there to get the name of the yarn and color. At that time, I had no idea I was going to blog about knitting. Blogging serves as a personal record. So here I can record the project with instructions.
Knitting is so relaxing for me…better than anything I’ve tried. It keeps my hands busy and my mind relatively quiet. I bought a book called Mindful Knitting and love how it parallels knitting with mindfulness. It’s something I can practice while knitting.
Here’s the scarf:
I used the twin rib stitch. Since I’m just knitting rectangular things (like scarfs, blankets, and washcloths), I can use stitches from a basic book and just knit away.
