Fastest scarf ever made....by me anyway
Fast forward about 10 hours, I'm sitting on the couch and remembered that I had bought that funky yarn. I've also failed to mention that I'm going to be seeing my mom tomorrow morning so I put myself in a little time crunch, as usual. The label promised that you could make a scarf with one ball and in no time flat. I planned on putting that to the test.
I took another look at the label before stripping the ball of fluff down to its birthday suit.
If you can read it the clearance label says $1.97, but it was actually less cuz Joann had a coupon today for 20% off everything, even sale items. That brought the grand total for my mom's birthday present down to a whopping $1.58 + tax. Here's the naked truth....
Yep, it kinda looks like a sleeping longhaired bunny on my couch, but not for long. The label instructions were really good but I like to be thorough so I googled a tutorial found this is a great one from Red Heart. It is a finger chained scarf, which I had never done but it was crazy easy. I'm not kidding in telling you, start to finish, I was done in about 4 minutes. That includes everything from unwrapping the yarn all the way to hiding the ends and with no crochet hook or knitting needle in sight. The finished product is pretty adorable and I hope mom likes it.
On a side note, here's what Gidget did once I took it off her. I had woken her up to take the scarf pic.
I'm totally writing this post at 11:45 at night, which explains the bad lighting in the photos but I felt inspired to put this post together fast. Night owl that I am I'll probably be up for another hour or two anyway.
