Knitting, or Gifts for Other People
Etsy to the rescue! I started knitting the scarf on Monday night as soon as I opened the package, and yesterday afternoon, I had a decent bit done. The lighting in my office is surprisingly really good. It might have something to do with the giant windows right behind my desk. Maybe. :) Even this lighting can't do these colors justice, though. Anyway, I'm knitting this by alternating one knit stitch and one purl stitch. It looks exactly the same on both sides and it's also extra thick and plush, because the purls get pulled back, which makes it almost double layered. I'm also going to join the ends together to make it into an infinity scarf. Uber-chic, you know?
Just so you have an idea of exactly how large these needles are, they're about as thick as my forefinger. Craziness!
