It's not a scarf

Posted on November 5, 2008 at 2:12 PM

While at the Peabody Museum in New Haven this past weekend I was nearly able to complete a scarf.  The scarf was created so I could get much needed practice with my knitting, all while being earmarked for a local charity. 

Oh the excitement in doing a scarf.  Knit one row, purl the next.  Oh joy.  (yawn)

I wanted to do something more exciting.  How about a project that involved a little bit of shaping?  I decided I would knit up a preemie cap for the Knit One, Save One campaign.

One problem.  I don't know how to knit in the round -- or read a knitting pattern -- yet.  And, to top it off, I didn't want to knit up a square, seam up the side and then the top.  Where is the excitement in that?

I decided I would make up my own little pattern and here is what I made ... a shaped cap that is seamed up the side.  I used my crochet knowledge for decreasing and getting the shaping I wanted.  I'm not sure if I decreased correctly, and I know my tension needs more work.  I certainly have some more learning to do.
