Let Me Less-Than-Wow You

Looking for the SewMamaSew Giveaway?  It's HERE.

Do you ever make something really pretty then take some un-spectacular photos of it?
Let me less-than-wow you with some crochet work I did recently.  Always behind on the latest trends, I finally got with the times and made my mom an infinity scarf for Christmas. I love all the different options for wearing it. We have the bra-strap-showing option:

The not quite centred properly option:

And the shelf-for-my-boobs option. (Out of focus to boot!)

Which are all too bad as this scarf turned out better than expected.  I can only crochet one stitch well, so it's a simple pattern stitched in a rectangle using a soft chunky weight yarn and a large hook.  I had to pop the scarf in the mail in time for the holidays, so these are my only pathetic bragging-rights photos. 

Here's what a well-photographed infinity scarf looks like:
