New Tricks KAL

Tin Can Knits has been hosting a “New Tricks KAL” (#TCKnewtricksKAL).

The idea is to challenge yourself with a skill that scares you or one you’ve been wanting to try.

New to knitting, I chose to try a Drop Stitch Scarf.  Luckily, this was a project in Marley Bird’s “My First” series on RedHeart.com.

I learned a lot…made a lot of mistakes…need to learn how to fix those mistakes.

Well, there is a  mistake or two!

Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out.

A good learning experience!

It has been packaged up to send to my niece who is in college in New Hampshire.

Also included in the package: knitting needles (5mm), a crochet hook (6mm), worsted weight yarn and bulky weight yarn.  When she is home after graduation, my sister in law and I are going to teach her how to knit and crochet.  Well, we are going to attempt to teach her (I’m not sure how good we are as teachers)!

Happy Knitting!
