I’ve started knitting on the scarf of doom.so far there is a block of pink,black sparkly & turquoise.
Whilst knitting I’ve been thinking about whether to keep it or gift it..
I realised that I actually had very little in the yarn stash ! I had recently donated a whole lot in preparation for moving house.
So I have a selection of black with silver sparkles,purples ,red/black marble ,bright pink chunky,pink/red fluffy stuff of unknown origin,turquoise chunky & some orange/red/black chunky & fuzzy upcycled.
Found my large wooden needles & am ready to cast on
So , i read all about the “scarf of doom ” & am now casting on a scarf of doom .These words from Deadly Knitshade
“It doesn’t matter how you knit, or what you knit, or where you knit it. You’re fantabulous because you are a creator. Be proud of everything you knit, because, no matter what you end up with, the fact is that you created it with your own two hands and it’s bloody marvellous that you did.”
I truly believe in the above.I believe that knitting has kept me going when there was nothing else, it makes me smile when sometimes there is nothing to smile about,i love being able to create something no matter what else is going on in my life.
I learnt to knit when i had 2 major operations ( after 2 other ops the preceding years ) in a year & became a carer ! Knitting has literally kept me going.
We all have our own journeys to embark on but i know that knitting will always be along for mine.
happy knitting everyone whatever you choose to knit.
