Every year the cold weather catches me by surprise and it really shouldn’t because it sticks around for six months out of the year. After I get over the initial shock, however, I gleefully start pulling out the ridiculous amounts of scarves and mittens I own (no hats for this head unless it’s really cold).
I don’t believe there is anything more rewarding than knitting a scarf. They are the first project many knitters tackle and yet they never seems to lose their appeal. I’ve been knitting for about five years and I still love knitting scarves, in fact, I’m working on one right now. But of course scarves are only part of the winter accessory equation. Hats are usually the next thing a knitter learns how to make and if you dare to be a little adventurous mittens follow. Here are my favorite mittens, scarf and hat that I’ve made.
My mom made the mittens and I embellished them with some needle felting. I love them!
This is the very first thing I ever knit. It’s nothing special but I’m rather attached to it and out of all the scarves I have my favorite.
My first attempt at fair isle knitting was this hat for Dieter. I think it’s awesome even if it’s not perfect.
