My new project:
To knit a scale Dr. Who scarf... that's 11 in. by 21 ft!
if you want one- i can make it to order, and of course, no charge to you. (the first one i'm making is for a person who is 6'3"- and wants it in th exact same style as tom baker's dr. who... hence the long measurements)... if you want, i can make it in dimensions to
1)double your height + enough extra length to wrap around your neck
2)double your height so it will be long but not dragging
3)a long-ish scarf but not quite down to your knees... i usually make my long scarves around 8 ft long.
let me know what dimensions and i'll start working on it when i'm finished the first one.
No rush, take your time.
I've been having second thoughts about the length, anyway. I'd probably have to wrap it around my head. Eight feet seems decent and civilized.
If you're getting paid well, you should think about branching out into Harry Potter scarves. Shorter length + larger fan base = more $.
i take orders for all kinds of knitted things in the wintertime. the profit margin is generally pretty thin. it takes a long time to do, plus yarn is not cheap. i'm getting a good price for the first dr. who scarf because it is a special order and the yarn he requested isn't terribly pricy.
