Scarfing It

This is a little project I did with my art group last week.  You basically use straws as a loom to weave a scarf.  Nice for people such as myself who couldn't knit if ordered to do so at gunpoint (though I can't imagine such a scenario).

Here's one started...

And in Rachael Ray fashion, here's one finished.

I'm doing one now with twelve straws, and it is a bitch.  It's something to knock out whilst watching a movie, such as Sleuth, which is what I did yesterday.  (Also did it during SNL.  At 10 p.m. I was begging the Fates to allow Sarah Palin to do or say something inane enough to be newsworthy at that hour, but it wasn't necessary.  She was fricasseed Fey-style nicely without it). 

Up next?  Perhaps a creative writing project with the prompt, "a scenario in which someone is forced to knit at gunpoint."  


  1. "...a scenario in which someone is forced to knit at gunpoint."

    LOL. I'd so read this :) Do it! Do it!

  2. Just you wait--I'll do it, and oh how you'll regret asking for it. Ha! :)


Always feel free to chime in.
