Infinity Scarves for Dummies . . .

 . . . because it takes one to know one.

And I am one.

A dummy, that is.

I bought a lovely drapey shirt only to shrink it before I got to wear it.  D'oh.  The color and the fabric was so lovely I decided to do something with it.  So I made this "infinity scarf."  It took all of 30 seconds to make.

Lay shirt flat.

In a straight line, cut off the hem and the top of the shirt (just below the sleeves).  

Twist the scarf at the seams and pull on over your head.  The seams should lay on the back of your neck (that way you can't see them).  And . . .

Done!  30 second accessory . . . not bad, not bad.

While we're on the subject of making scarves, I have to show off a special treat I got this weekend.  As I've mentioned previously, I had a hysterectomy a week and a half ago.  My friend Lindsey sent me a "care package" filled with cherry Pop Tarts (my fav!), a handmade hat and scarf.  Lindsey has a hurt elbow so she enlisted the help of her uber-talented friend Maggie to finish the hat and scarf.  Maggie then had her entire knitting group help to get the project done.  I was just blown away when Lindsey told me the lengths she and other people took to send me this care package.  I'm so grateful to everyone who helped . . . the package came when I needed a lift and I will treasure the hat and scarf for years to come.
