Way back in the day, I was working at a convention in Tennessee. It was January, and there it was pretty cold, but it didn’t seem that cold, you know? [I seem to remember hiking from the hotel to the magnificent outlet mall/Willie Nelson Museum wearing flip-flops….] The distributors that had made the trek from Hawaii, though begged to differ.
“We are from Hawaii — we’re not used to this cold!”, one told me. “We cannot handle!”
Sister, I hear ya. When it gets down into the 20s, and there’s talk of snow, we cannot handle.
Even my finials were chilly.
Looks a little cozier wrapped up in a swanky ruffle scarf, no? Heck, why not pile ‘em on?
To tell you the truth, I was excited to have an excuse to try out this tutorial now — while it was still fresh in my brain — rather than wait til next winter. What are the odds that I’d remember that, “hey, I wanted to make some of those cute fleece scarves” by the time Christmas rolls around again? I think we all know the answer. If not, I’ll give you a hint: I’d already forgotten that I’d bookmarked the link to the tutorial.
