Knit one, pearl two

I knit this 85% wool/15% mohair scarf as a silent auction item for the upcoming 23rd annual Eagan Rotary Art gala fundraiser. I hope someone will bid some $$$ on my scarf! My wife and already 2 of our 3 daughters also knit. We're a close knit family!
Do you knit? Do you have any hobbies? What do you like to do in your free time?

  1. I am a knitter! I hope your scarf sells for a good price. Adding a photo of you knitting might increase the bids. Let us know how it goes.

  3. Will you knit ol' chrome-dome «Louis» a new toupée? Remember - «Louis» goes to the same barber as Luther...

  6. I don't knit, but I might take it up someday. It seems like it would be relaxing. I like activities that let me shut down my brain and focus on them.

  9. As a child I learned to knit, but I think I did it last time 60 years ago. Hobby? Shooting photos, blogging, walking. At the moment - listening to politicians because election to parliament will take place some time in 2011. It is often a peculiar way of communicating. Today I saw an old sign at the National Museum: Don't spit at the pavement. Remember that!

  10. I hope you make a bundle! Nice scarf if I were there I would bid on it. Maybe your family should start your one Etsy store. Right now photograph and blogging are my hobbies. I am hoping to take an Encaustic painting class this year.

  19. Looks so plush and cozzzzzy! You did a great job, Leif. So nice and even. I've knitted in the past but my attempts of a scarf have turned out crooked...either lose a stitch or gain a stitch! I'm certain you'll get a hefty bid for your pretty scarf.

  20. What a nice thing to do.
    Good onya, Leif. I wish someone had taught me to knit.
    These years my "hobby" is Jerusalem.

  21. I love the idea of a closed knit family ! Congratulations to you all !

    I don't know any men who know how to knit. My mother, aunt and elder sister used to knit quite a lot but none of them has done so in ages.

    I never got into it, couldn't be bothered. My first scarf was too ugly to wear or offer anyone, I lost interest at the age of 13.

    I've heard that knitting is becoming fashionable again in France but this new trend is yet to reach anyone I know.

    Congratulations on your great work anyway, I hope the scarf sells well!
