The Yahoo Knifty Knitter group I am a member of has been discussing this scarf thing for a while now.  I wish you could read them all.  Its kinda funny.

I love the idea of making them for Christmas presents and attaching the web address.

Also, if they "use no electricity", do they knit with no lights and no running water.   Tongue

I use a Knifty Knitter knitting board and the stitch these are made in is the simplest stich there is for a knitting board.  And (no offense to KK knitter - I love my KKs) but even a trained monkey could knit with a knitting board.  The hardest part is the buttonholes.

I have had cars that costs less than this scarf.  You have to admit though that "Pidge" is a cute word.  It probably means "F U" in some obscure culture that worships goats. Wink

I am going to Micheals tomorrow and every week until Christmas and buy one of every color of the new Bernat Cashmere yarn  (actually it was on sale for like $2.79) and make one for everyone.

If I make one, I post a pic.  LaShawn

Chunky wool (not cashmere, but this is a test) + new needles (treat) + 2 wooden buttons = less than 5

I'll have finished this while watching TV tonight.

$425 by butt cheeks.

holy knockoff, batman.  Looks like someone reads Brooklyn Tweed's blog.

Doesn't this really seem more like a joke than a serious venture?  This really is just too "Emperor's New Clothes" to be real.  Someone has a serious web design hobby and a not-so-serious knitting hobby.

It took an hour. Not even a complete hour, as I was watching the news and drinking cherryade while I did it. If the power had not gone out, I would have had the buttons on in an hour too. I am also led to believe loom knitting is faster?

I do have some snazzy wooden buttons and a soldering iron, so I might get my initials on them tonight...

WOW Weird!  I just clicked on the website to take another look at the stitch used and  a password protected block came up.

Plus - don't the Knifty Knitters come from a factory? Hello electricity!
