Where There’s A Will

Last week, my niece Jessica wanted to crochet a scarf for her boyfriend’s mother.  She went to her stash and found the perfect yarn, but did not have a large enough hook to accommodate the gauge of the yarn.  How did she handle such a dilemma? She looked on YouTube to learn how to hand knit.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT3gdc44Lp8

I am amazed at her instant success.  Usually, it takes a crocheter practice getting comfortable using two needles after developing muscle memory holding a hook.

Jessica has some tips of her own before embarking on hand knitting:  Use the restroom, have a cigarette and turn off your cell phone because you won’t be able to answer.

Fantastic job Jessica!

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
