I’m happy to say that I was able to take advantage of a rather icky situation today and had the opportunity to finish my very first scarf. I began working on this, my first real attempt at knitting, a few weeks ago, but never really had more than a few minutes to work on it.
Papa’s scarf, modeled by Guppy who is biting her lip to keep from laughing. Not at the scarf, just because I’ve wrapped her up like a baboucshka.
This is the most basic project there is I suppose : a scarf in point de mousse or knit stitch, but I feel really excited. If I can do this, well, I do believe I can do other things.
Windycityvegan pointed me to this adorable beehive bonnet, and now I’m just yearning for circular needles so that I can make matching hats for Guppy, Monsieur Fish and I, because really, how crazy cute would we be then?
This is my first Fiber Arts Friday, a little something I stumbled upon over at Wisdom Begins In Wonder. I do think that the term “fiber arts” is a bit extravagant for my little scarf (well, big, it’s over 2 meters as Monsier F didn’t wanted a custom job), but it’s fun to get my toes wet a bit with this knitting!

Looks like a beautiful scarf from what I can tell in the photo–and that Guppy is too darned cute!
That scarf’s adorable and so is Guppy!
I swear she’s grown since the last time you put up pics of the Gup! (Don’t I sound like a grandma myself?) How cute is that scarf! I keep thinking that one day I’ll learn to knit and make a Dr. Who scarf for my brother!
Libby, a Dr. Who scarf is just the best idea ever!
your first scarf is absolutely wonderful, Shelly! congrats, my friend! i love that Guppy’s modeling it for us – she’s adorable! that’s a big scarf, too – so awesome! you kick to much ass, Shelly – and i’d like to say that matching hats for you all sounds gloriously fun!
Gorgeous! A very impressive first project! (And you’re a good stylist too- it makes an enchanting Babushka 😛 )
