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.

Thanks, Jane! Weather permitting, I’ll wear it next time we meet for lunch. 🙂
