|Wearing my new scarf. Scraggly ends and all.|
I’ve been taught how to knit before. That’s why I wanted to finally finish something, I think it was sad that I’d never finished a project. In some ways I knew this would be an easier goal. Not only was it fairly easy, but it was really, really fun! Once I figured it out I could watch TV and knit at the same time which was great because I always feel a little lazy if I’m sitting just watching TV if I’m not super invested in the plot (which lets face it, is often, but not often enough).
One thing I was really surprised with was the conversations that took place while I was knitting. For some reason a college kid pulling out a half-knit scarf really throws people and can easily wind up in a philosophical discussion about women’s roles, religion, or Amish people. Interesting.
