So here we have pictures of a scarf on a table:And now for the details:
*The yarn is Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in Brown Heather. I wanted to make sure Jay would actually wear this scarf, so he picked out the yarn. It would not have been my first choice because I think it has the feel and texture of pubes. But, if that's what Jay wants around his neck, then so be it.
*I found this yarn to be much harder to work with than 100% cotton yarn. The various strands didn't stay together and the colors kept playing little tricks on my eyes. Plus, did I mention it feels like pubes? The pube-ness of it dried out my hands and in order for me to work with it I kept having to lotion up. (Or lube up, if you'd like me to continue with the immature, vaguely sexual references.)
*I am a slooooooow crocheter. I've thought about making a few of these for holiday gifts but I don't know if I could get more than one done before the end of the year.
*I still don't consider myself to be a proficient crocheter. The fact that I ended up with something that someone actually wants to wear, is amazing to me. That being said, I think I've nearly mastered the single crochet stitch.
*A few months back Dani sent me Boye's I Taught Myself Crochet kit and it's been incredibly helpful. There were so many little gaps in my knowledge that this book was able to successfully fill in. I highly recommend it.
*I bought way more yarn than I needed so I may eventually end up making a scarf for myself too. Even though I don't love the feel of it, I do think it'll be warm and cozy for the cold, wet months we'll be having soon. Besides, nothing says love better than matching pube scarves.
