Infinity Scarf

A few weeks ago, I got it into my head that I had to make an infinity scarf. I went on down to Joann's to procure some knit fabric and got down to it. I looked at a few different blog posts to see how each of those people accomplished the task. I need to be honest: while each of these tutorials was well written, I was SO confused. I don't know why. 

I cut the yard of fabric I purchased in half (one tutorial said I only needed half a yard). It became very clear that that was not going to work for me. I sewed the fabric back together. I was not feeling super confident at this point. I sewed down the length of the long side to create the tube. Then, after fighting with the fabric for a while, I properly connected the ends and sewed those together to make the loop. Does any of this make sense? I don't know. I can't explain it. Anywayyyyy, below is a picture of me sewing the long side of the fabric.

And here I am, wearing the scarf right after I finished it. I know, I know. I look just ravishing. The scarf is super comfy, though. I would probably wear it to sleep if I wasn't worried that it would strangle me in the night.

And below is a picture of me wearing the scarf at work. I have gotten some compliments on it, which makes me feel less lame about the frustration that came with the sewing process.

I actually made one of these for Katie for her birthday a couple of weeks ago. It turned out well, and it was much easier the second time. I'm hoping I'm on an upward curve with these because dang. It shouldn't be so hard to make a big circle of fabric, right? Right.
