Sometimes it works out that the afterthought project, the ‘I guess I’ll do this project just because I have to reduce my stash’, is the wild success of the season. That’s what happened with the Artful Infinity Scarf turned out to be.
It’s a super easy project. It’s attractive, in it’s own funky/scary way, and it shows off a yarn which might otherwise take over whatever it was made into…and, apparently, it’s very stylish. So stylish, in fact, that both girls wanted it for their own, which surprised me. Honestly, I wanted this one for my own.
Fortunately, it’s a quick, easy crochet project, I have lots of yarn in my stash, and if I don’t use it to make these little babies it’ll be sitting in my stash for years, with me using up a few yards here and there to add a ‘pop of color’ to an otherwise dull project.
Here’s the first one, modeled by Abby (my eldest).
Looking at the picture, I’m not sure it solves the clown barf/muppet pelt problem, but it’s fun, she seems to like it, and her sister (who is actually fashion conscious) seems to like it as well. So I guess it’s a win.

I didn’t win the Red Heart package from B Hooked. I entered a Rafflecopter drawing for a box of goodies from Yarn Crush (23 July).
