And this was my plan – and it was a success!!! If you don’t recall, last year I wove a hideous scarf for the Manimal that I dubbed Space Bog, which I tried to coax off of him a few months later with another mediocre woven scarf labeled Serenity Valley.
I clearly have given up on weaving, which is a good thing, since I’m obviously not good at it. At all. But I’ve gotten quite good at knitting, so I made him a 6 1/2 foot scarf using a herringbone pattern, and because I can do nothing the easy way, I doubled up on the wool, twisting two identical yarns together to create a thick, cozy scarf that matches his fairly monochromatic wardrobe of grey, black, and navy-blue suits.
