Flashback Friday

It has been several years since my first knitting lesson....since that time I have been many hats and bags and some scarves...Yet pictures of those finished items are far and few in between. It never occurred to me that one day I would want to look at what I have done and even compare the progress I have been a long the way. I am much better at it now-thank God for sites like Ravelry and Instagram. Imagine, my surprise this week when my ex showed me a black and grey scarf I knitted for him a few years ago. I was shocked that he still had it but even more surprised that it looked better than I remembered it looking. Sure he has never washed it and there is some pilling, but after almost 9 years it has held up pretty nicely.

Close up of the scarf

Pattern was a basic 1x1 rib. Two strands of either patons classic merino or their classic worsted wool (don't remember) held doubled throughout. It's comforting to know that things I made so long ago are not only still being used but are still appreciated.

It's so thick...perfect for the harsh winter we just had .... If only he would wash it!!! Lol

Happy Friday :)

  1. I think it can be fun to look back and compare past projects. Although I to find that I tend to be very critical of my older projects. :)
    That scarf is fantastic!
