I love new adventures. Driving off into the unknown while searching for handspun yarn is a perfect adventure for me! And I'm thankful my Faithful Sherpa wanted to join! The Boy...he just wanted to stay home! That's ok. We'll bring him back something from the road.
It was a chilly start this morning. Yes you are reading the temperature correct. 0 degrees! I almost asked if we could turn around and head back to the nice warm fire where the Boy is. But we forged on.
There is so much peace and tranquility within a snow covered forest. So I sat and watch the scenery outside my window for the first part of our ride.
There is so much inspiration out there. The colors unfolding right before my eyes as we round each bend of the road.
I knew I wanted to bring a project that was easy, something I didn't really have to think about as we drove past these incredible views.
So I've decided that simple infinity scarves would be the perfect project for the road. They are easy enough to knit and I can continue knitting as I watched the landscape change every mile of our ride.
And the Gaptastic Infinity Scarf is the perfect pattern! Here's my version...
300 yards of chunky weight yarn
size 13 circular knitting needles
cast on 131 stitches and join the round. Be sure not to twist the stitches.
Place a marker to mark the beginning/end of your round.
Knit 1, purl 1
Continue knitting until you reach between 11.5-13" in height depending on how tall you like your infinity scarf.
Bind off in pattern.
See super easy.
Now I think I'll go back to watching the incredible, ever changing scenery outside my passenger window.
