I Can Knit!

See that fabulous circle scarf? I MADE that this weekend. I’m quite proud of myself. I tried knitting once when I was younger but I didn’t get very far because I wasn’t patient. Now I’m taking a fiber arts class, so I relearned and I enjoy it now. It’s kind of meditative. I’ve also learned crocheting, and today I made a pretty awesome hyperbolic structure (I’m in a group for a project and we are making a knitted and crocheted installment to go in the art building).

sweater: secondhand J. Crew; cardigan: Old Navy; skirt: secondhand J. Crew; boots: secondhand b.o.c.; tights: Anthropologie (sale!) earrings: secondhand; scarf: made by ME!

On a random note, last week I had this urge (for about three days!) to grow my hair back out again. I’ve never had that urge last that long before…it was weird because I really do love my hair short (though it’s getting too long right now). I think this picture is one of few pictures that makes me miss my hair (Me [left]? With long hair? yeeaaah!). Maybe I’m misinterpreting my nostalgia. Maybe it’s London (where this pic is taken) that I miss.

    I love the scarf! Excellent job (and such a pretty color!). I’m a bit envious of the scarf and skirt. No fair (handmade and secondhand!).

      Thank you! The two best ways of obtaining things – homemade and secondhand! :)
