hey look how awesome the delivery i was chasing around and waiting for is, though. i said
i was going to get a better one sooner or later, didn't i? this one's made of wool, the colours are much closer to the real thing and it's also somewhat wider. it's so awesome. i briefly considered knitting a new one myself, but a) i've already made four really long scarves in my life and i'm pretty sure that's four too many and b) when i looked up wool yarn options in the right colours the cost would've been so high i figured i might as well splurge and commission someone else to do the work for me. especially since apparently for some reason wool yarn is a lot cheaper in the US. (acrylic yarn or noticably imperfect colours weren't an option because, uh, i already had one with those features...)
this also means that
i'm giving the old scarf away. for free. if anyone reading this wants it, it's yours. no strings attached, just tassels. it's made of acrylic yarn, 3.5 m long including the tassels and not likely to stretch much more, 22 cm wide. the colours are somewhat off because i was poor when i made it and couldn't afford the brands that offered better colour options, but they're pretty consistently too saturated, so the overall effect isn't bad. (you did
see my costume pictures, didn't you? you already know what it looks like!) i'm 1.7 m tall and if i wrap it once, the tassels clear the floor by a few centimeters. if none of you want it i'll probably try a sales community, i guess, so if you do want it, speak up now.
(i'm very disappointed to learn that LJ appearently doesn't support the blink tag. either that or firefox doesn't. the future isn't so cool after all.)
