Temps have been steadily dipping down, even in SoCal. For Christmas I went with CHPG to visit his family in Palmdale and if it weren't for this scarf, I probably would have frozen my butt off. I know it was definitely somewhere in the 50s. I know, I know, but 50's to me is freezing.

-thread, needle, and scissors
This is a pretty simple one day project. I made it on the 23rd when I had a day off but needed something to occupy my hands.
First, pin your fabric together lengthwise with the "right" side of the fabric facing together, and sew. I used a simple basic backstitch. When done with that your fabric will basically resemble a tube. Turn the fabric inside out so that it looks like it normally would. Next, gather your ends and pin together the "right" sides again. Trust me, it's going to look a little weird at first but as you sew the ends together in what will become the infinity, you'll start to see it.
You're doing this so that the ends aren't as visible. When you have about 2" left you won't be able to backstitch anymore and so you'll have to do a running stitch in a loop to close the ends, and you're done!
Now you've got yourself a pretty faux fur (which is all the rage this winter season) infinity scarf and you'll have caught up on a few shows on Netflix, all in one day. If that's not called productivity, then I don't know what is.
Stay warm, Bears!
