Rows of (Red) Cotton





'Member when I told you about that cool yarn store in my town called Cast Away?  Well, we took another trip there--couldn't resist.  And Elliott decided he wanted me to make him a scarf and proceeded to pick out his yarn.  I love how entitled my son feels (as I've mentioned before)--makes me happy.

This is my first endeavor with knitting.  It was fun!  It was easy.  I know it looks amazing and difficult, but I'm gonna let you in on a little secret that grandmothers have been keeping for years:  all knitting really is, is making knots or loops.  Anyone can do it.  So don't let the complex appearance of a knitted object scare you off any longer.  You can do this!  I promise.  Here's the tutorial I used.  Check it out, claim your own victory, and let me know how it works out.  I love a good success story.
