Feeling accomplished

Yep, you heard me.  I actually feel like I accomplished something last night and this morning.  I finished my first infinity scarf!  Of course, I had to have pink in it…

I’m not really sure what yarn this is.  I’m thinking it’s Loops and Threads Impeccable…what happened was I came across this afghan I’d started but never finished.  I don’t even know what pattern I was using.  So I decided to tear it out and reuse the yarn.  Then, when I decided to make a scarf, I figured why not use this yarn…hey, it’s got pink in it, right?

I like that you can wear these scarves in a variety of ways…long, wrapped, cowl, tied…whatever.  I think I may make a little tie to match it with some beads on it…what do you think?

This was so easy to make…finished it in less than three hours…chain stitch, single crochet, and double crochet…that’s it.  Oh, and I found the free pattern on ravelry.com.  I can’t believe I waited so long to check out that site (thanks for bringing it to my attention, Donna).

So now, after not working for a month, I finally feel like I’ve accomplished one small thing.  I suppose now would be a good time to start making scarves for charity, wouldn’t it?

  1. I like that about yarn–if the initial project isn’t going anywhere, rip it out and start over. Your scarf turned out nicely!

    • Thanks, Patti…yeah, I’ve decided to just repurpose the yarn in all of those partially finished projects…you know, the ones that I can’t figure out what I was doing…usually there was a reason I didn’t finish it in the first place, I guess. What I’d like to start on, while I’m off work, is little afghans for the great nieces and nephews…made one for each of their parents when they were little…maybe now it’s time to tackle them for the babies…and we’re starting to get a lot of those babies in the family again. Not that I’m complaining!
