knitting like an old lady!



 


Top - Primark
 Jeans - Vero Moda
Rings - H&M
Circle scarf - Self-made

Remember when I made this headband a wee while ago? From the leftover yarn I made a matching scarf. This is maybe the fourth circle scarf I've knitted, and it's the first one I really like. Usually they don't end up looking like I imagined and I give them away as gifts, haha. But I think this one's a keeper. I've really started getting into knitting again. I've never done anything bigger than socks and mittens and such, but am thinking of starting a bigger project. Maybe a jumper! Do any of you knit, or do you know nice looking patterns? (Sharing is caring!)

Good stuff. I was raised by knitters, so I'm no stranger to circle scarfs. :)

What I would give to learn to knit! I used to crochet when I was little and I wish I wouldn't have let it go by the wayside. I've actually wanted to pick it up again. That scarf is the perfectly pretty winter essential :-)

I knit a baby sweater once and it was a commitment, my next project is to knit a hot water bottle cover. But then my husband wants me to knit him a sweater! EEEPP
