I've told you guys I make scarves when I've got time on my hands, right?
I crochet them.
Well, on my vacation I had time on my hands, and one day I went shopping with Relly and my grandparents, and I found some really awesome yarn...for a dollar a skein. Do you know how freaking awesome it was to find this kind of yard for a mere dollar?
So I bought several colors and a few others and I took them home to work. And Relly asked me to please make her a scarf with the really fluffy one.
Now, I've never worked with this yarn before, so it was a learning experience.
Padawan called it "ugly and not a scarf", while T-Man, Relly's boyfriend/future husband thing, said, "It looks weird. Like a Double Helix. And it's not ugly, but I wouldn't wear it myself." And then he added that he has no fashion sense, which is correct.
I freaking love this thing. It's awesome, especially considering this was crocheting, not knitting, and I've never used this kind of yarn before.
Then I made a couple more...
But my model was a little smaller than me.
|Choo Choo doesn't particularly care for modeling.|
|But that totally didn't stop me from doing it again.|
The lesson here?
I should probably not be left to my own devices when I'm on vacation. Choo Choo wound up with three new outfits, a Santa Hat, a bathrobe, and she was forced to model for me. Plus she got two baths, poor thing.
