...on thursday threads

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to get a little alone time at the house.  It was very, very nice.  I made good use of my time by watching 27Dresses on tv and making two of these....


It is the tube scarf that I made, in case you were wondering.  I found a tutorial here and decided to give it a go.  Now, the cool thing about this project is that for both of the scarves it probably cost me about three or four dollars total.  You see, I bought this fabric at SAS when I was in Phoenix for I think 1.99 a yard.  The only tricky part about it was working with the jersey material.  I'm so excited about this one and I'm thinking I may need to make more!  Please excuse the fact that the scarf does not match what I'm wearing...I didn't want to change just to take the picture.  Speaking of taking the picture....there is a reason why I always chop off my head when I do self portraits in the mirror like this one.  Here it is in one word: AWKWARD!  Seriously people, teach me your tricks of how to take a non-lame self portrait like this one.  I see people do it all the time on their blogs and I just don't have the knack for it.  I think it looks like I'm about to laugh in this picture because in my head I was totally making fun of myself.  I think this picture was take number six or something like that.  

P.S.  The WOD today was a 5K.  I'm proud to say that I beat my time by two minutes.  Still averaging only about an 11 minute mile but hey-it's better than before!

  1. Good job on the 5K. I am so proud of you for continuing CrossFit! I love the tube scarves. If it wasn't so hot here already, I'd ask you to make me one! Maybe for next winter... you know, using a light fabric! ;)
