It’s been just a few days since YarnKat was launched and I feel reminiscent. Jump into my time machine as we go back (GASP) 40 years, a shy teenager learning a few tricks with knitting needles and crochet hooks: How to do the backward loop cast on, making chains and single crochet with a crochet hook.
I was proud to be able to knit scarves with circular needles. All I needed was 1 circular needle, 1 straight needle, and 1 crochet hook, all Boye brand.
I knitted my brother a scarf and embellished it. I think the yarn I knitted with was Wintuk, an acrylic yarn. I was quite surprised to learn that he kept the scarf. It looks brand new. Handcrafted by me, handmade by me.
