So, for my friend's birthday, I gave her a gift card to Pac Sun in a knitted case and an infinity scarf. I hoped she'd like it, and I think she does--at least the other guests did. I think the packaging definitely helps. If I just threw it in a plastic bag, I don't think it would be nearly as likeable. So I cut 2 long pieces of brown wrapping paper, drew my label on one with a Sharpie, and then I sewed the pieces together to prevent her from seeing the bleeding onto the other side. After, I rolled up my scarf, and marked where the label overlapped. After, I taped it shut with packing tape, and voila! A professional-looking scarf. People thought I bought it.
I made the scarf with size 15 needles and Loops and Threads Charisma yarn. I hope she has a wonderful birthday. :)
