Knitting... Again

Way, waaaay back when, at the beginning of the summer, I decided that I wanted to get back into knitting. But I had forgotten most of what I had learned about casting on and making stitches and all of that other important stuff. 

So I sat down and watched a couple of how-to vids on youtube and got knitting.

Right now I'm working on red a white striped scarf. Okay, so it's cream and crimson, but let's not nitpick, shall we?

I learned how to knit stripes at the beginning of the summer, and I was super proud of myself. I'm not the best when it comes to knitting and crocheting, and I don't usually have the patience to really practice at it. So I was psyched to realize that I can just sit down and teach myself something. 

Fast forward a couple of months... I hadn't worked on my knitting in quite some time. My summer's been fairly busy, between other projects, archery, starting a new job and getting engaged, my free time's been pretty well eaten up. But fall is just around the corner, and winter will be coming after that. It's high time I get back to some of my craft projects, and what could be more timely than making a scarf?

Well, that's it for now. I just wanted to post something to get me going again. I'm also working on a post about making a quiver, so hopefully, that'll be posted soon...
Until then...
Happy knitting!

By the way, this is the video I watched to re-learn how to 'cast-on'. It's by knittingtipsbyjudy on youtube, and I found it super super helpful!
