I love doing things with my hands. My hands need to be busy all the time.
There's a fantastic blog out there that I love. This inspiring woman also keeps her hands moving and does lots of hand sewing. If it didn't take so long, I'd hand sew everything.

Anyway, she had a post about knitting with thread. Since I don't know how to knit, crocheting was my attempt at this unlikely scenerio. 

It was NOT easy. Check out the above photo. Just making the chain stitches in the first row was interesting. Thread is very slippery.

Then adding to the chain stitch felt like trying to make bows out of wet spaghetti covered with sauce. 
Thread does not hold itself in place or keep it's shape very well.

I stuck to it and ended up with the above....and that's at far as I've gotten. What could I make out of that???

So then I tried two threads at a time. A little bit easier. In about 6 years, I will have a scarf.

So I went back to my Infinity Scarf with real yarn. I have to make 56 inches of this pattern, the directions inform me. Mine might be a bit shorter.

I thought it was going to be a mobius strip, but I don't think it is.

That's good. I like things to have more than one side to them.
