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.


  1. There's that beautiful face that I miss so very much! Beautiful...oh and the scarf too!

    1. You are sweet! I look very tired or I forgot to clean the makeup off the night before.
