So today’s pin was almost a failure…
While my grandparents were over I attempted to make this scarf by myself, all endeavors were unsuccessful. The original pin had a video I have, by now, memorized because I watched it OVER and OVER again. For some reason I could not wrap my mind around it. My grandmother probably could testify to hearing me grunt out of frustration every couple of minutes….
HOWEVER, today Mama gave me some help and we then figured out what was meant in the video and that once we got it done…it would actually be really cool!! So I turned on Phil Keaggy tunes and arm knit away.
Often times in the video, the lovely red-head would say to “imagine like you’re using needles”. It was strange how true that was. If you are familiar with knitting whatsoever, you know that it is just a series of pulling working yarn from loop into another loop in order to create a “stitch”. And that is exactly what your arms did.
Eventually it would form the (over sized) basic knit pattern with pearl on the back!! Crazy!!
Although I did not literally TIME how long it took in order to create my new scarf…I imagine it was about 30 minutes. (about 6 Phil Keaggy songs)
Not too shabby, eh? 😉
8 down…54 to go!!
