The lovely Jessica Fenlon gave me my first knitting lesson a few weeks ago and I'm slowly plucking away at my first scarf.I was making a beginners mistake of adding a stitch every row and finally last night I looked up some youtube videos to help me fix this. So this scarf will be a little wonky on one end and fine the rest of the way, oh well! I figure the ends will be tucked in my coat so no one will see anyways. I only have a little bit of time to knit at night, so hopefully this is done before winter is over! I only know one stitch right now but when I get enough practice in with it I'm going to bug Jessica for another lesson.
I saw this guy on the walk to work yesterday morning on Chicago Ave in West Town. The same route and seeing the same stuff 5 times a week can get boring, this definitely brightened up my morning a lil' bit.
Sorry for the cell phone photos, but I stopped by the Anysquared group show closing party on my way to see Masked Intruder and Vacation Bible School at Township so I wasn't quite prepared. Anyways, here's my work next to one of Tracy's pieces. I really love being involved with Anysquared!
