I’ve known how to knit since a young age, but I’ve never ventured beyond the basic garter stitch. With the impending arrival of my best friend’s baby this month I’ve decided that it’s about time I try to knit something a little more complex.
My goal is a hat with ribbing.
On my way to that goal I decided to first practice, and what better way than to make a wee baby scarf!
As my first time creating ribbing I would have to say so far so good, but of course a hat is a lot more complex and to be honest, I'm going to ask my mother -- a veteran knitter -- to help me out so that the day that baby is born I can give him his first gift from his Aunt Rachel.
And so I shall!
