Ta-da!

Ta-da!

I finished my first scarf. Hooray!! I believe I first mentioned this project back in April when I started taking a beginning knitting class, which was a birthday present from my husband and kids. I gave one other pictorial update in May. I took a long break from knitting shortly after that. I’m not sure why. But I picked it up again in late June/early July … And now, my very first project is finished!
Here are some more photos …

Some detail of the cables, eyelet ridge and color change …

The eyelet ridge up close, which was created by doing a yarn over. I thought this was a fun stitch …

Color change up close …
Overall, I’m pleased with my first knitting project. It’s not perfect, of course, but I can see my progress, which is encouraging. I think the scarf is a bit short, so luckily it’s for my five-year-old daughter, who doesn’t need an especially long scarf =)
My current project is the same scarf pattern but in pink for my six-year-old daughter. I am altering the color-change portion a bit to create thicker stripes of the lighter color. I chose to do the same pattern, because this particular one gives me a lot of practice doing various stitches. I have plans for at least one more scarf, and then I’d like to try a hat!
Well, friends, I hope that whatever your weekend brings—knitting, sewing, gardening, cleaning, traveling, etc.—it is filled with God’s peace and joy! See you soon!

  1. Super cute! I'm impressed with the variation in stitches. I can only muster the plain and simple with knitting, and I assure you it would take me much longer!!

  2. Sarah – the scarf is amazing! great work. I should have taken the class with you – Lord knows you are now a much better knitter than I –

    Also, I love the tooth fairy story – Bella Simone is a perfect, but so was the "Dentina" name someone mentioned. So precious. Of course #1 would ask for her name! We are getting all settled in here in WA – I can't believe how big the twins are in the picture with your mom —- wow! Boy twin looks so cute with the hair cut!

    And progress on the house situation?

    love,
    Anna

  3. Congratulations-it looks perfect! Can I borrow it for a knitting project I'm supposed to turn in, I'll give it back after I get a good grade, I promise! Just kidding!:) You did see my "teacher's pet" post right? Otherwise you wouldn't get that!

    So jealous though- knitting is a gift I don't possess, along with sewing! You are so blessed!

  4. Anne is being naughty! I read her story and her comment is very funny. Thanks for the chuckle, Anne!
    I LOVE your scarf. Wonderful effort and I'm so pleased you finished and have plans to make more! Some day I will learn to knit.
    I just found a needle craft shop (no knitting or crocheting though) that will feed my needs for cross stitch and embroidery. They even have classes . . . guess I'll be getting information this weekend and figuring out a class I can take for my birthday.
    Can't wait to see your next project.
    Have a blessed weekend, too!

  5. Thanks for all the kind words, ladies! I appreciate them, and I love sharing the things of life, in this virtual but real world, with you =)

    Barbara, I like that pattern! We just might have matching scarfs this winter!!

    Anne, I get the comment, as I remember reading your teacher's pet post. Very funny!

    Sarah, I hope you find a class you want to take for your b-day … It must be coming up, huh?!

    And, Laura, I hope to give an update on the quilt soon …
