Friendship & Knitting!

For several weeks now I have been taking early morning walks with my dear friend Bonnie. 
How rejuvenating a walk is and puts a kick in my step for the rest of the day!
Bonnie and I decided to take a knitting class and learned how to make these pretty scarfs. 
Today was our first day and this is the beginning of my scarf.
 I plan on making more for Christmas this year!
I only knew how to crochet but today I learned to knit!
This is an amazing yarn from Universal Yarn. This is Rozetti~Tundra Glitz
You can check out the wedsite here.
I LOVE the ruffles you can make with this looped yarn!
I had to snack on some Mary Jane's, (my name). 
When I was a little girl I thought these candies were made in honor of me! LOL!
I love using these smooth wooden knitting needles.
This is the scarf I am going to make next! So pretty and lacy.
You can find this yarn called Opus hereThey provide a FREE pattern for it too!
Have a wonderful day and share some time with a friend! 
You never know what you might end up doing together...knitting?

Don't knit, but have always wanted to learn. I so enjoy stitching with a friend though. We get together once a week to work on needlepoint projects.

Oh My Gosh! I have never seen anything like that. I have never seen yarn like that either. I never learned to knit or crochet. I keep thinking I need to do that one of these days- xo Diana

Your scarf is beautiful and it is terrific that you have learned to knit! I have a knitting group I belong to and we have so much fun...and I get all the help I need with my projects. There is nothing like a support group for fun and help.

I love those ruffled scarfs and they look so easy with that interesting yarn! I don't know how to knit, but I do crochet, maybe there are patterns for crochet, too. It's so nice to walk and knit with a friend. Hope your week is lovely. xx

It's beautiful, Maryjane! I love finding fabulous yarn like that--knitting scarves is one of my favorite things to do while watching a movie with the family--so relaxing and fun! Love giving the scarves as gifts...
