After an extremely stressful quarter at school, I was really excited to begin learning how to knit this break! Something about how hectic my life has been made me want to sit down and just take the time to learn something completely new. I’ve always wanted to try knitting but never really got around to because of all of my sewing projects.
I decided to start with a scarf, since rectangles seemed like the simplest thing to make. With some help from my roommate and Youtube, I was able to begin knitting…. but I was super slow.
But surprisingly, it turned out that my mom actually knows how to knit! After a brief wrestling match over the needles, my mom managed to teach me a method that really sped things up. For some reason, I’ve always been a bit resentful of learning things from my parents, but it was nice to spend time learning something from my mom. The more time I spend away from home, the more I appreciate my parents and realize that they are right 99% of the time.
I have about 15 inches of scarf now, so it’ll be a while before I’m finished. I hope to complete it before break is over so I can give it to my friend when I get back to school. I know that a store-bought scarf would be cheaper and better quality than anything I can make right now, but I like to believe that my scarf is filled with love. Or at least that’s what I tell myself every time I drop a stitch 😛
