15 and a half years...
Fifteen and a half years, this is how long it took me to finally finish a knitted scarf. I never really took to knitting, but somehow this project was always there and I never even thought of unraveling it to use the yarn for something else. I still like the colours and they kind of fit with my current clothes. Yeah!
Basically I met a french lady a couple of months ago, we hit it off and she told me how much she likes knitting.
She gave me enough encouragement and motivation to actually finish it. I didn't have much left to do, neither did I have much yarn. So I completed the last pink part, cast off and crocheted the two ends together.
Instead of making a scarf, I made a loop. How about that?
I am pleased with myself: my project is finished! I have the needles free again. And to be honest, I was so proud and happy that I started a new knitting project right away! It is currently on hold because I need more yarn, but when I am on it, it goes quite fast and the knitting is fairly even. I am using bamboo needles and find them very comfortable.
Let's see if I can finish this second loop before the end of the year, that'd be a tremendous improvement on the first one :)
Wishing you all a lovely day
