infinity scarf

Last night, while Marcus and Morgan were falling asleep and Charles was building a LEGO castle with Chris, I stole some time in front of my sewing machine to whip up this infinity scarf. It seriously took me about 20 minutes total. I think this may be my new favorite project.

I was too lazy to get the camera tripod out this morning (and also too lazy to put makeup on for the photo shoot), so I just gave Charles a short tutorial on how to use my camera and he produced this photo. Not bad, huh? I am shameful to admit this, but I think he takes better pictures than I do.

Anyways, I love how this scarf drapes. I used about 1/2 yard of the green jersey and a remnant* of the patterned jersey that was a little less than 1/4 yard. I took a peak at this tutorial from Sewn Studio before I started. My scarf is probably about 3-4 inches shorter than this one. Again, I am too lazy to measure.

Given that I just got reprimanded for the recent spending I've done to fuel my new scarf obsession, I think I will start making them myself from now on. This one came together for under $4! How can Chris complain about that?

*I will not link the original scarf that was made out of this jersey print. It was super ugly, so I ripped it apart shortly after finishing it. I'm much happier with this one!
