The Late Fall-slash-Early Winter of Big Knits

My knitting the past three months has been all about instant-gratification. It was a very stressful fall as I worked to get everything ready to apply to graduate school, and I needed the type of knitting that I could just zone out to.



US Size 50 needles definitely helped


It tried to put on as many I could before my head disappeared completely :) I know, I'm hilarious.


Most of these were part of Christmas-knitting and I was not able to take a picture of all of the scarves before I gave them away. I was able to document a few, though, and if you're up for some instant gratification yourself, definitely give these patterns a try!
