Knitting

Lately I really want to learn how to knit. But I look at the instructions and they are a different language to me. Since I am taking the next semester off, and will have some time before the baby comes, I might try and figure this whole knitting thing out. But we will have to see...

See how HERE
I love this scarf. It is just very classic looking and not too much, just simple.
