a january scarf.

i learned how to crochet for a class project in college, and i have to say that knowing how to crochet has turned out to be pretty darn useful! i made myself an infinity scarf this week, even though we've been having 80-degree temps and sunshine for the past few days. california must have forgotten that it's actually january.... of course i'm not in any rush for cooler weather, but when it does get here i'll be ready!

**i crocheted a 13x72-inch strip and then folded it in half and stitched it together on one end to turn it into an infinity scarf. perfect length to twist around twice. :)

  1. so pretty! also, love your green jeans. so rad!

    since i am not adept at crocheting nor knitting, my friend just knitted me an infinity scarf. i found some virgin wool at a thrift store - it's so soft! :)

  4. oooh! Beautiful! I taught myself how to crochet a couple years ago, but have never completed a project. I started a scarf a few months ago and...it's still not finished. One of these days.

  5. that weather was insane! last year when we went home, it rained the whole time, so i came completely unprepared this time. not that i'm complaining though... hanging out on the beach was quite a treat ;)
