So I thought " how about making scarves for the men for Christmas?". Granny Tan and I were scheduled to go on a road trip later that month so I could pick her brain for 4 days straight if I needed to. So I told Tan my plan and she gave me my one and only lesson that week. I started with the cotton dishcloth pattern. Super easy and because it's so quick you get instant gratification. Nothing like a little positive reinforcement to keep you knitting! I moved on to scarves pretty quickly since I was on a time crunch. I don't have a single picture of any of the scarves I knit because I quickly sent them away. But I'm going to start snapping pics now! So stay tuned, because there is always something on the needles around here.
Oh and those purses I had commissioned Tan to do for me... I ended up finishing them up myself. And they turned out great. I do have pictures of one I did for my niece. I'm going to do one for myself in the reverse colours.
