    Knitting it All Together

    Yarning Yogi Creations started on a whim. I had heard about Arm Knitting a few years ago, it looked super easy, and I thought I could do it, much to my surprise, I could, and my first scarf turned out, decent, to say the least. Jump ahead a year, I wanted to give actual knitting a go, so my friend took the time to carefully show me the basics over and over again until I got it. Sort of. Thing was, every time I messed up I would call her up and tell her she had to come over and fix it, I wasn't sure where I went wrong, etc. It was a mess. I did, however, finish my first ever knit scarf, it turned out alright for a first scarf, but I didn't pick knitting back up again until this year. Till this Fall I noticed I had a lot of yarn left from last year, and so I gave Arm Knitting another go, because it's easy, but this time, I doubled the yarn to make the scarf more chunky and used a full two skeins to make an infinity scarf, and let's just say, I wasn't disappointed with the results! I'm lucky to have small wrists so I carefully took my time to tighten each stitch to ensure that the finished product wouldn't come out looking loose and stretched out like most arm knit scarves do, and unlike what the tutorials say, it certainly doesn't take 30 minutes to make, these ones take a good solid 3 and a half to 4 hours to complete. After I made the one, I decided to get a few other colours to make some scarves for myself, then I got requests from family, and friends, I think you get the picture. I even started getting compliments wearing them out, "where did you get that from," "They're so beautiful," "Those are arm knit?!" So here I am.
    Being that I'm a student in my last year of university, working part time, teaching yoga on the side, and volunteering like crazy in between, knitting these scarves are a relaxing past time. The money from these scarves will be going towards my Yoga Teacher Certification next year in Toronto with Karma Teachers that I've been lucky enough to have been offered a partial scholarship to.

    Love and Namaste,
