A few years ago, when I had to stop cross-stitching because I could no longer see those tiny holes on the linen, I had to find something to occupy my hands. So I started knitting. Over the next year or so, I made scarves and hats and felted purses - even a few shawls. Last year, I finally got some close-up lenses, and was once again able to do my beloved cross-stitch. So I stopped knitting. But a couple of months ago, with the cooler weather coming in, I found myself wanting to do some knitting again also. I've got many scarves started, including this one, which is coming along very nicely. I'm using Noro Silk Garden.
