Last year, I made a scarf and then gave it away to one of the gals in my book club. I had saved the remainder of the sweater for a second scarf, but never got around to doing it.
Now, over a year later, I have made that second scarf.
I used some Japanese silk for the underside. It's really cozy. On the first scarf, I tacked down the loop, but didn't do it for this one and it slid right off after an hour or two, so that will be fixed.
I love these Japanese fabrics. My mom got them from someone and they are the oddest shape. They are just long rectangles. I haven't had many occasions to use them, though I did recover a lampshade with one. I want to use some for linings in clutch bags or something, because they are the perfect size for that, but who uses clutch bags? I never go anywhere and, if I do, I have a gazillion vintage bags to use. I don't know. I'm not purging them, so they'll just have to continue to live in stash purgatory.
