#Knitfail FTW

I told you last week that I bought one skein of yarn for a project that turned out to require four. I was like, “Why didn’t you say that on the OUTSIDE of the package, you goo-gog?” So I cast on half the number of stitches the project asked for and did a simple knit stitch until all the yarn was gone.

The finished whatever-it-was ended up being about 3 1/2 feet long — SO not long enough to be a scarf or a wrap.

So here’s what I did with it. I wrapped it around my neck, turned part of it down for a collar, and fastened it with a scarf pin made out of a bunch of copper bangles and a something-or-other that you stick through things. It worked out pretty well. Looks like I meant to do that all along.

Pretty durn slick, eh? And, if anybody gives me any grief about it, I have a long, stiff, pointy thing easily to hand. ~insert evil laugh here~

I’m posting today at Echelon Explorations, inviting writers with a speculative fiction element in their books to post blurbs and links. Come see if you find anything you like, or leave your own.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character has to make do with something that is woefully inadequate.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
