My MIL has commissioned me (except y'know, for free) to make her sister a scarf. I didn't have much desire to do so, which I told her, but said I'd do it anyway because I am too nice. I loathe knitting scarves because they're so monotonous and are soooooo long.
So I ask MIL what her sister wants and she says that she said she wanted 'one of those hairy ones that everyone is wearing'. O_o I can only assume she means a Fun Fur scarf as those were VERY in several years ago and she lives in a town that is very behind the times. I flat out said no to that.
MIL basically had no clue what she wanted though and that was only my assumption, so she said to knit her whatever as long as it was red. I was then informed that she has a wool allergy (which my husband doesn't actually believe lol) and I have to knit it in acrylic. Joy. Not. I told my MIL that I'd look at the craft store and see what I could find, but to not hold out much hope because their choices are very limited.
I'm now searching for a pattern that will be interesting enough, but not too intricate since I really don't want to do this anyway. Hope I can find some sort of yarn.
