I’ve had a little sartorial plan going on this week. Simply, to wear a different scarf each day. You see, I have a lot of scarves- a lot of very beautiful scarves- but I still tend to wear the same couple all the time.
I went through the collection for just the ones I’ve knitted since last winter which haven’t been worn yet. Hmmmm, I may have had a bit of a scarf binge over the summer…
Monday morning was cold and frosty, and I wore this purple and green zigzaggy number.
Tuesday’s scarf was the Yarn of Doom, which some of you may remember tormenting me at Woolfest. It did not want to be socks, however, so I tamed it with the power of linen stitch.
On Wednesday, I was luxurious in purple cashmere. I don’t like the way this one stretched though- scarves which are too long and too thin are not my favourite or my best- its destiny may involve reknitting.
I think Thursday’s scarf may be my new favourite. It is sparkly, and big enough to wrap up in properly.
Friday’s scarf is made of silk I bought at Woolfest. The colour name was Tidepool. How could I leave it?
Today’s scarf is self striping blues. It was not warm enough for the extraordinarily nasty weather we had, but it is very beautiful.
I have already designated tomorrow’s scarf. It is the swirly Northern Lights one where I had to beat the striping pattern into submission. (See how I always win eventually…)
I am sure it will look Just Right with uniform on parade tomorrow. Navy, with turquoise to match our neckers, it’s almost like a plan…
