I'm not a knitter at all. I know how to do the basic knit and purl stitches and have made a few knitted dishcloths but that's about it. I much prefer stitching with a needle and thread and crocheting. When one of my co-workers came to work wearing a lovely knitted scarf she had made I knew I had to make myself one. It is so easy and just 6 stitches. The wool does it all!
