Complete: Knitted chartreuse scarf!

6 Comments

I’m having the proud feelings today, guys.  For the first time in all of my days, I finished a knitting project. Bonus points must also be given because I like it and will use it!  What what!

Baby’s first (completed) knitting project: Fringed chartreuse scarf!

This took me many hours (probably over 10, I would estimate), and almost exactly three skeins of baby llama wool (at about $9 a pop, two of which I paid for since the first was part of my Christmas gift). Mental note for my future self: never try to make money selling your knitted goods, unless you are prepared to sell them for exorbitant prices and have no one buy them.

  1. Beautiful.
    And yeah.. so many fabulous hand-made things are just not that cost-effective when you can buy things made by the thousands/millions in factories. 😦 But to make for yourself = teh win.

  2. Thanks, Shauna! Yes, I agree. Sometimes handmade doesn’t mean money-saving, like I think it used to. Unless you’re getting materials on the super cheap (second hand, etc).

  3. … and getting materials on the super cheap is sometimes not all that hard! i remember anna buying this SUPER UGLY old sweater for cheap cheap cheap and unravelling it to provide her with plenty of good-quality wool with which she made a super cute toque!!

  4. Ha, I was actually just thinking about doing that the other day! Anna is clearly to be respected for her salvaging skills.

  5. I just found this site. Maybe you’ve seen it before but I thought you might get some inspiration from here as well:

  6. Awesome, thanks Anya! I’m gonna link to it.
