1 Extra Long, Bulky, Cuddly Scarf


25 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

I knit comically long (think Tom Baker length) scarves with super soft bulky yarn. They're quick/fun to make and can be done in any color I can find in a bulky or super bulky style yarn-so basically, most colors and shades. My favorite brand to use is Loops and Threads Country Loom-most of my scarves made with this yarn are an average of 12-13 feet long, but I could go even longer for a couple extra simbi. I only knit with same-color yarn, I'm not experienced enough to do color blocking or fancy stitch patterns. I've knit about a dozen of these bad boys this year as gifts for my tumblr followers and friends, and I've gotten positive feedback from all the giftees. Let me help keep you warm like the 4th Doctor this winter! *Disclaimer: I can't knit you an actual Tom Baker scarf, as that's about 50,000+ stitches and would probably take me several regenerations. I can ship these scarves anywhere in the USA if you aren't local to me.

Training & Qualifications

I've been a casual knitter for over 15 years. I used to knit during classes in high school, now I usually do it when I'm watching TV or movies. It's a nice way to multi-task, as knitting is one of those things you can do by feel.

Availability & Preferences

In the evening.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Doctor Who Fanfic: Up to 1000 words
I really want to bring back the barter system, and I'm currently unemployed, so cash is harder to come by. But I love writing and crafting-they're hobbies, and it doesn't feel like busy work to me, so I would love to exchange handmade things for other useful stuff.

About Melissa Davis

I'm a artsy crafty, nerdy David Tennant fangirl who has an unhealthy obsession with Doctor Who, Broadchurch, 90s television (Are You Afraid of the Dark?!), cartoons, existentialist philosophy, and old... British bands that broke up before I was born. I spend most of my time knitting, cooking, handmaking beauty products, making jewelry, tumblring, and creative writing (mostly fanfic). I love learning how to do new crafty things-currently I'm working to learn how to make cold-process soap! It's a lot more like chemistry than I would've imagined, but it's a lot of fun coming up with different therapeutic essential oil combinations. I'd really love to learn more about photography, video editing, and making GIFs. I'm a walking thesaurus and a fairly competent proofreader/editor for academic and creative writing. I enjoy working with my hands, philosophy, and other pursuits of the more
