A Knit Fix

The scarf is finished!!

I've been working on a new lovely green scarf. It's very cozy and just the right length. Just in time for the usual (you think spring is here with the 40 degree temps but it's not, really...) February we're about to have.

But this is a gardening blog, you say? True, but it's one about sustainability. Knitting, sewing, cooking, gardening: creating a homesteading experience would be nearly impossible without these practical, everyday skills. I'm curious as to the point in time when these things slipped beneath us, seen as something less than an office full of pencil pushers.

Yarn: Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton in Pistachio (3 skeins)
Needles: US 15
Pattern: Palindrome
