I am not a knitter... yet.

I mentioned in a previous post this I wanted to pick up knitting this year. What sparked this desire? This scarf. After many "how to" youtube videos, blog tips and books I am feeling quite confident in my knitting. So confident that I already picked up the same blue sky bulky alpaca yarn used in my "dream" scarf. The dream scarf is made using the seed stitch. This is done by purling then knitting  repeatedly for a row and then purling your knits and knitting your purls on the next row [then repeat]. I've been practising this using thinner yarn that I had around the house. This shot is of my seed stitch practise piece.. soon to be my first scarf! Dream scarf progress to come!
