Finally Finished: Little Honey Has a Scarf!

I posted earlier about my adventures in knitting.  Since I watch/play with my granddaughter during the weekdays it is hard to get a lot of scrapbooking done.  I have done a few pages and a little album, but as LH becomes more active and sleeps less it hard to get started.  I needed another outlet to create.  Thus knitting.

I did not have time to take classes so I searched the internet for how-to videos.  Let me qualify that.  I searched for  how-to videos that worked!  Many times I had to take information from one video and that of another to make it work.  Then it was just a matter of practice.  LOL  I did a lot of that.

I finally finished my little scarf for my granddaughter.  It's not perfect, but there are no holes from dropped stitches.  LOL  I took one of my beautiful Prima flowers and attached it to a hair bow to create an accent piece.

That is a darling scarf! I finally decided to take a knitting class at a local store. YouTube is great, but can only take me so far.
