Gone Hitchhiking


Well not literally. But I have started on a really fun knit. Before I joined Ravelry I had this comfort zone for knitting. Norwegian pattern tend to be very vague and trying new things often made me give up because there were no way to guess what the designers really meant with their sort of descriptions.

Ravelry has made me more brave and using english patterns there are no problems trying new techniques. They are so good explained that I can manage on my own.

Ok. After a long story, here is the beginning of my new scarf. I try new yarn, new technique and I love it. It is so much fun to see the scarf grow with its shark theeth.

The pattern is excellent and the designer has a lot of great designs. Check out Martina Behm on Ravelry and give it a go.

Do not fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: Could have, might have and should have.
