Scarf it Up


I have too many scarves, don't you? All different wools and patterns, some very expensive. Today I am wearing one of my favorites, which was neither expensive or real wool. The color, pattern, softness, weight, etc. are all perfect. I nicked it off of one of my daughters last year, naturally. Scarves like this one can be found this time of year in just about any department store on clearance, yep, clearance. But you already have too many. . . don't you?

I have an obsession with scarves, too!

Just never enough scarves. Never. Yeah, I have no idea what to do with them. I did find some fabric I'd looked and looked for in all my crap..that I had wanted to make out napkins for a friend. Darn if I did find this rose pattern (My mom let me have) the day after my friends birthday. I have been telling myself I'm going to crochet every skein I have into something. Of course, it hasn't happened yet..I'd rather be writing. Since I'm so fed up with Gray's Anatomy with all the dumb writing and over acting & Lost isn't much better.

Thanks for the note..yeah, I have a crush on Archie too..hehehe...

I love that pattern. I'm going to go buy a scarf right now.

I only wear scarves when I'm going outside.
I've never really been a fan of wearing scarves as an accessorise. :)

LC: More accumulation than obsession, not that I'm not obsessive.
dk;dc: My god, I don't think I would ever wear anything that I had crocheted, except my hat.
Zibbs: If you will give me a mailing address, I will send you my extras. They might be a little girlie though.
Vic: The pattern is Croft & Barrow, made in Germany, RV#66349. I might have been wrong about how expensive the scarf was.
JD: We keep the heat on a low setting, so the scarf serves as a bit more than an accessory. I am also into hoodies for the same reason.

That is so cool!

OMG ! We can start a club !
No Diane, I'm not an earrings-addit - I'm a scarf addict too !
At a certain point, I bought like 2 a week !
But most of them not expensive...I even bought plain ones and embroidered them with sequins...
Good idea or good idea ?

diane said...

Dominica: Good idea. I am a big fan of small details that lend a personal touch.

Hi! I like your blog a lot.
No, I don't have too many scarves. Never enough. If all you can throw on in the morning is jeans and a black sweater--scarf drawer to the rescue! And I'd wear that one you posted, too. I love the dots and the darkish red.
