On Nnenna’s Needles #1

Red Licorice

Welcome to my new weekly feature- On Nnenna’s Needles (thanks to Ashley for the awesome suggestion)!  On Wednesdays, I’ll do a post about my knitting- either projects I’m currently working on or things that I’ve already made but haven’t shown you guys yet.

This is my most recent knitting project, a late Christmas present for my godmother.  I started this ruffled scarf last Monday and finished it yesterday.  It was a very straight-forward knit, perfect to do while I’m watching back episodes of The Mentalist.  Then today, I sewed in one of my lovely personal labels that I purchased on etsy from RememberWynn.  Since every project that I give out is so personal, I love the special little touch that these labels add =)

What do you guys think of my first ‘On Nnenna’s Needles’?  Is there anything else about the project that you’d like to know? Let me know in the comments! :)

    Thanks for your sweet comment! I love this scarf! What a gorgeous color! I tried knitting a few years ago and failed miserably! Just could not get the hang of it! So this is very impressive!
