studio friday...practice makes perfect

my dear friend, becky, taught me how to knit last saturday. since then i have been knitting and knitting and knitting this scarf that is now over 6 feet long! i have been practicing and practicing because i never want to have to learn this useful, fun skill from scratch again. practice does indeed make perfect as i have not made 1/2 as many mistakes in the last 3 feet of this scarf as i did in the first 3 feet! i plan on wearing it doubled, all jude-law-in-the-movie-alfie-style. the blue velvet ribbon will be interwoven in the stitches.

hi Heidi..FYI...Becky taught me to knit too..knitting changed my life, I can now ride in the front seat of the car with my husband driving any old way he pleases-much faster than I drive-knitting away and not saying one little word. Made him pretty happy too!

the velvet-y ribbon was, of course, becky's fab suggestion! if only one day i could be 1/2 the rockin' knitter she is, i can rest easy!
