Another quickie: Infinity Scarf #2

2014 March 31

A close friend is going through a really rough patch lately.  I thought I would cheer her up with an infinity scarf.  She likes earthy colors and neutrals.  The scarf, while not only being fashionable, will fill a medical need as well as she is having problems with her neck and shoulders.  Keeping that area warm and out of drafts will help her to feel better.  Killing two birds with one stone as it were.

I had the perfect fabric in the stash, about 2 yds of linen jersey from Michael Levine Fabrics in LA.  I have been hoarding this fabric since I bought it a couple of years ago.  It’s very hard to find linen jersey.  It has a gorgeous hand, almost silky.  It’s drapey and nubby.  Perfect for an infinity scarf.  The temps here are still a little cool, especially in the evenings and early mornings, so this fabric is perfect for our climate, even in the summer.

I used half of the fabric (vertically), so I still have enough to make another scarf.  I’ll probably save it for another quick  gift down the line as I don’t really wear scarves myself since I don’t like things resting on my neck and collarbone.

But enough of the wordy words…  I used the same order of construction as I laid out in my last post here.

Here’s the scarf!

In other sewing news, I am still not happy with how my serger is working.  So I will have to find a new shop to service it.  It would have been great if the guy I took it to last week had really fixed it because he’s so close to where I live, but he didn’t.  Now I have to find a new place.  Sigh…

    From what I saw your machine doing in an earlier post I would change your needles. My machine was doing the same thing and I just have to insert the right type of needles and it works fine. I have a Pfaff hobbylock that is about 23 years old.

    I hope it does cheer up your friend, I’m sure she’ll appreciate that you were thinking of her and were willing to give your long-stashed fabric.

    I don’t know if they still have it, but I did find a grey linen jersey in The Fabric Store here in LA. You could give them a call if you want to replenish your supply. They don’t have a web store, but I’m pretty sure they take phone orders.
