Whenever I wear this scarf, random people stop me and ask me if I knitted it myself. I didn't. I bought it from Urban Outfitters.
As I was browsing in a little shop in Nashville, a lady wearing similar neckwear stopped me by grabbing the little tassels that dangle from the end of my scarf, causing a tightening effect around my neck. "Did you knit this scarf?", she barked. I was a bit afraid to answer."No Ma'am", I meekly replied. "I bought it." I was afraid that if this was the wrong answer, she would rope me in closer for a thorough inspection, but luckily, she let me loose with a casual "Harumph". I continued on my way....in my store bought knit scarf.
But, someday, I shall knit. I'll make scarves, and hats, and gloves, and little knit animals that I'll give as gifts. One day.
Do you knit?
