Thoughts anyone?

How does one get through a nasty case of "Designers Block"?

I'm going with unhealthy amounts of sugar and a bottle of wine. I'm either going to be brilliant or wake up tomorrow with the worlds funkiest hangover.

Take that Kate

In response to the horrible Kate Spade Scarf, I came up with this

Chunky Knit Scarf

It's a Chunky, 2x1 rib scarf. The only problem being that I spun the yarn myself and seem to keep underestimating how much I will need. The Yarn is a mix of hand dyed blue faced leicester carded with bamboo and plyed with ripped hand dyed silk left over from my college days. It actually doesn't look that good in skein form but I am loving how it looks knits up

Chunky Knit Scarf- detail

It's currently only long enough to wrap around my neck, and I just ran out of that color silk. So it will either end up with some asymmetrical "stripes" or I will make a chunk knit neck warmer.

Either way, still WAY cooler than that $95 acrylic mess.

Oh, Kate Spade now I remember why we had to break up

is why people should learn how to knit.

I'm usually all for the "it's easier and cheaper to just buy a sweater/scarf/mittens" mentality. But a chunky garter stitch acrylic scarf? Go pick up some $3 Lion's Brand from Walmart and save your self $92.
