Knitter Incognito!!


My 11 year old son wanted me to show of his first knitting! He did this scarf of mostly garter stitch. It's a wool blend chunky weight yarn and I've forgotten what it's called. It was knit on size US15 Bryspun needles. Tonight he wants to cast on and knit his own washcloth! Cool huh?
Addendum: Brian's says a big 'thank you' to all who left him kudos! He is already teasing me that he got more comments than any other of my posts!!! Yikes! There's a 'sneaky' smile under that scarf!

Oh, I love little boys who knit. I have a 13 year old neighbor boy who knits and I once taught an entire 4th grade class, girls and boys, how to knit. The boys were fearless knitters!!!

This looks great! Love the way the stripes turned out. Stitches look to be even and the guage looks consistant throughout. Excellent job! Looking forward to seeing the washcloth, too.

Brian, this is AWESOME! I'm so proud of you for finishing it! What kind of yarn and pattern are you going to use for your washcloth?

Great job, Brian! That's the way it is in blogging, the better posts get lots of comments and the rest, not so much. keep up the good work and you will soon have something else finished to post on mom's blog.

Brian - That is very cool - or maybe very warm - nice work. So great that you wanted to pick up the sticks and give knitting a try - keep up the good work!
