I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls.
I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
This flit of a scarf is the perfect accessory to add a little color or warmth to an outfit. This crescent shaped scarf is made using short row wedges to create an outside edge that is longer than the inside, lacy edge. This makes the scarf ruffle and the twirl along the hanging edges.
