Learning to Knit

One of my new years resolutions was to learn a new skill (or two!). So after stumbling across Wool And The Gang’s website, I decided to give knitting a go! I’ve already finished two scarves. One being a tad too long. Okay thats an understatement, its full on 4th Doctor Who length, but Harry is being really nice about it and still wearing it even though it looks really funny. Need to work out if it’s possible to shorten a scarf from both ends!
For my first scarf I used Wool And The Gang’s Wooly Bully alpaca yarn in Lipstick Red, Eagle Grey & Pink Blush that I found at John Lewis in their winter sale. I didn’t use a pattern (because I can’t figure them out quite yet), but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

And below is the longest scarf ever. This was about  two thirds of the way though. I should have noticed then that it was going to be massive! Once I fix it I’ll take some better photos of Harry modelling it for me
