Happy mothers day!

So after 26 years of pure frustration & occasionally tears (when my age was in single numbers!) I have finally figured out how to tie knots in yarn with 2 sticks and gosh darn it I'm rather stinkingly proud of myself :D My dearest mum has been trying to teach me to knit since I was 5, 26 years later for Mothers Day she finally got her scarf!
Now I don't know the knitting lingo but it was like knitting rope with broomsticks! I used UK sized 10 needles with Sirdar Bohemia yarn and it came out like this


And a crumpled up shot so you can see the pretty colours :D


If anyone has any basic beginner patterns that you think I could wrap my brain around please do share as I really enjoyed making this little scarf. Oh and my mum loved it...well she said she did lol

Hope you all had a great mothers day, I know I did!

  4. Oh well done! I love the description, I'm 48 and still haven't got the hang of it unless mother-in-law sits with me for *every* stitch! I can see how the wool would be an inspiration though!!
