Spaghetti Scarves

I had an old, grey cotton scarf that was given to me one Christmas. I never wore it because it was really long and heavy, and, honestly, a little drab. I thought it was a good chance to repurpose it. I cut 1 inch (approximately) strips, rather long ones, pulled gently to stretch and curl the fabric, and tied the ends together. It took about 20 strips to get the fullness I wanted. I made sure all the knots were in the same area, then I wrapped a strip around it until all the knots were hidden. Then I had extra fabric, so I made another one.  Yay for expanding your wardrobe for free!

While we're on the "How To" Train, I figured I'd throw in a recipe. It's kind of an Asian flavor.

2 Chicken breasts (cut up into cubes for kabobs)
1 tsp Sriracha (I caved and bought a bottle because I had a few recipes to try that called for it)
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Orange Juice
2 Tbsp Lime Juice
1/4 tsp Curry Powder
1/4 tsp Garlic Salt
1 Tbsp Thai-style Sweet Chili Sauce
1/3 cup Soy sauce

Mix all the sauce ingredients together, then put in a plastic baggie or container with the chicken and marinate for at least 4 hours (I did it overnight. The longer it marinates, the better it gets). Once ready to cook, skewer and grill until cooked through. Spicy and delish! It would be really good with rice and veggies.
