Passing It On

While this might not be the world's best picture, it is still representative of something vitally important to me, namely, the passing on of the major love of my life (behind my family,  of course) . Knitting is a major player for me. It keeps me sane, happy, and occupied in a productive manner.

Abby is eight now, and we have tried teaching her to knit and crochet several times, with no success.  Today she was home sick and came with my sister to do laundry, and out of the blue,  asked to try again, and this time it worked. Aside from some tension issues, she is doing great. I couldn't be prouder!  Even my four year old nephew knit a row with assistance.

This is just one of those great days that will stick with you forever.

Ewe Want Luxury

I had the good fortune to purchase a skein of At Knit's End 100% cashmere yarn some time ago, and, not wanting to let any of this yarn go unused, decided to design a scarf pattern to use up every precious inch.  The yarn I used is lace weight, but the scarf can be adapted to any size. It is a lovely little lacy knit, perfect for holiday gift giving, or for your own personal use (my favorite option).

The pattern linked here doesn't have a finished object picture yet, but one will be coming in the near future. Enjoy! download now
