A dorky gift

I wanted to make something special for a friend. I had some Bernat Alpaca in my stash. It was enough to make a scarf from one of the Interweave Crochet magazines.  I started this scarf and realized I needed another skein to finish it. I only needed to make one more row. So, off to Michael’s I go to get one more skein. I finish the last row and then realized I still needed another skein to finish the edging on the other side. So…back to Michael’s again! All for this dorky scarf. After it was all done, I am looking at it, thinking, this is really, really long. What a dorky scarf!! It is about 8 feet long and I also put an extra row on the ruffle side. I was not paying attention while making it. Oh well, the recipient seems to like it.

Here is the dorky scarf for my dorky friend. 🙂

Here is an upclose picture. The yarn is really soft, but my dd#1 said it was itchy. We don’t care for things around our necks here.

Before I placed it in the box to be mailed, I rolled it up. It lookes like a great big fuzzy flower from the top, but from the side it looked like a great big pile of doo.

At least it is long enough to wrap around the neck several times for warmth. 🙂

  2. Oh my! I think it’s adorable-even if it did cause you a lot of trouble!

  3. I happen to like dorky scarves – especially dorky scarves with ruffles. I made one for The Man (minus the ruffles) when I first learned to knit – he still wears it. 🙂
