Jackson, and then came home to a surprise party!
First, I removed the woven back. I'm still waiting for the right project to use this in.
|So pretty, right?|
I took the big tubular bottom, and folded it in half onto itself. Then I sewed a seam to keep the ends together. I did it all by hand, which took approximately seven thousand years. Then, I cut through the center of the doughnut to create a long tube. I flipped it inside-out to hide the seams, and sewed-up the doughnut again. Beautiful!
But there were some visible vertical seams, and I wasn't a fan of that look.
So I took some embroidery floss and did a whip stitch along each seam. To my amazement, that was MORE time-consuming than creating the long seam! Oh well - it looked nice and hid the seams, so I stuck to it.

I'm really proud of how it turned out - it was labor-intensive, but I'd gladly work my fingers to the bone for my sister. I guess it wouldn't really be an eternity scarf if I had finished it quickly.
And the coincidence of the century?
She got me a circle scarf, too.
