A Knitted Tie

Knitting it was the easy part ...
Why? Why did I start knitting a tie? It's not something I would normally knit. Although it was really easy to do. I whipped it up the other weekend. I made it because one of the missionaries from our Church said he always wanted a knitted tie. I knew I had a pattern for one somewhere on my computer.

I blocked it .. I had never done that before ...
Now I that I have blocked it and let it dry I need to put some kind of backing on it. I read the pattern on how to do it. I have no idea what I am doing. What made me think I could read a sewing pattern? This tie is sitting there staring at me .. wishing that I would completed it. Why did I start making it? I don't even like sewing all that much. I used to .. I should bite the bullet and finish it before the missionaries get their transfers and I wont know where to send it on. Someone please give me the motivation and knowledge I need to complete this thing! Maybe I should ask Mark. He's good at that sort of thing ..

By the way I got the pattern HERE at Knit Picks if you're interested :) They have lots of free patterns there.
