FO Friday: My first knitting project!

Hi there!

I hope you are well :)

Work has finally quieted down a bit after a very hectic start to the year. It has given me some energy to get things sorted in the flat! More moving boxes are being unpacked (yes, we still have plenty of those left), and I find time to work on my projects as well. I still haven't started any new projects, but am working on the ones I have going already.


I have a bit of a goal to finish a lot of my current projects in the first half of the year, so the second half of the year can be stash busting. The more I get used the more space I have for new cool projects :)

So having that goal I am very happy to show you another finished project already! This is my first knitted project, started so I could learn the basics of knitting.
I used inherited wooden knitting needles, and I have to say that if I'm getting properly into knitting at some point I would need to get some circular needles instead. It was not very comfortable to sit with two big sticks! They got caught on clothes and yarn, which was very annoying.


I am very happy with my finished project though. Of course there are faults, but they aren't big ones. The scarf matches Shaun's hat, that I made on a knitting loom, so the scarf is his as well :) The scarf is made of wool, alpaca and a bit of nylon, but after washing it there isn't a lot of scratching in it.

My first proper knitting project but perhaps not my last one :)

Until next time,
