I’d been wanting a big infinity scarf for a while but just couldn’t bring myself to buy one. I’m one of those people that sees knit things for sale for $20 or $30, scoffs and says “I could easily make that and for way less money!”
Well, I certainly did make it but not for less money…This thing took me a good 8 hours to make and cost around $50. The basic problem for me is that, after working in my aunt’s yarn shop as a teenager, I can’t just walk into a big craft store and buy some cheap acrylic yarn. I have to buy it from a local mom & pop shop and get the 100% natural baby alpaca yarn from a local farm (like this one) or the organic merino wool or, well, you get the gist.
I sound so much like a Seattleite I’m rolling my eyes at myself. I suppose there are worse ways to spend your money though…and I do like the way the scarf came out… :)
