Scarf weather

DSC00243

As you may, or may not know, I am European by birth and was raised there and lived there until I was 24 years old. I have let go of some of our traditions, and hung on to others. One tradition I never really let go of, but had hibernating for a while is scarves. We wear them lots. Short, light ones during summer, more heavy and warm ones in winter.

Some people leave them off their wardrobes in Summer, but come September first, it is a must for any outfit to be topped with a sassy scarf. Having lived in the south of the United States for the last 10 years, I haven’t really followed this rule a lot. Obviously because of the heat. I prefer life -however unfashionable- to a heat stroke. That does not mean I don’t have any! I have loads! It is in my blood to buy them and make them. I cannot say no, to a nice neck piece, when I see it.

Up here in the PNW the weather is so much like home, that I am delighted to pull out my collection.

I have a few handmade ones and some I got as gifts. I have a few vintage ones, which are the ones I am super in love with. As you can see in the picture, I have a bunch of different styles and colours. The picture does not include my sarongs and sari’s, which I occasionally use as shawls, nor does it include the shawls I recently finished, that are gracing the shop as samples right now.  So THERE ARE MORE, believe it, or not……

I did give a two of these to my daughter, this morning and I did put one in the free-pile in front of my house (it’s gone already).

One thing is for certain: If I see another scarf/shawl somewhere in need of a good home, I am willing to provide one! LOL

How about all of you? Do you have scarves you love to wear? Do you have something that is a staple in your wardrobe? Let me know! Show me pictures on your blogs! I will link to them in my next post! 🙂

  1. I like cowls, tho I only have a couple. I really like hats,tho. I love making them and sporting them. In summer, its baseball caps and pretty lightweight hats that match my clothes. In winter its all about the warmth. Hopefully, I’ll find my winter hats and gloves this winter. I packed them away too well the spring before last. Lol
