Yarny – 4/365


So, apparently I didn’t consider my life busy enough. I declared today that I think knitting will be a new and exciting hobby for me to get into. I said this with visions in my head of way to cute baby bonnets and booties for my nieces and nephews, the family saluting me as the lovable, eccentric aunt who unapologetically knits everyone’s christmas gifts.

I went to Joann’s, read a few how to books in the knitting aisle to get an idea of what will be absolutely necessary to have a go at my first project: a scarf! I am moving to a colder climate in the middle of the winter, so I know I’ll need it. As you can see I made it as far as "casting on" today (and creating my own woolen pet hastily named Yarny…creative, I know), but who knows what tomorrow holds for me, in the big wide world of "knit one, purl two".
