Flannel scarf

an alphabet of thanks “S”

Scarves,  I’m thankful for scarves. I have at least thirty of them.  Many of them, I’ve knitted or crocheted myself. For a number of years, I made scarves for our local rescue mission. It only takes me a couple of hours (bulky yarn and big needles) and it’s a great way to use up leftover yarn.

Instead of long scarves, I’ve been knitting and crocheting cowl scarves. Here are some ideas if you need them.

Last year I started making flannel patchwork scarves, like the one below. I have seven of them in various stages of completion at the moment. Here’s a couple of links to some DIY scarves in case you’re interested.

I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve done a fair amount of traveling because of hubby’s many, and I do mean many, frequent flyer miles.  I have scarves from all over the world.  Some of them are so big, I’ve used them as table runners. I also bought many scarves for presents. They were generally the most inexpensive souvenir I could find and everyone I gave them to really liked them.

Their beautiful colors and textures remind me of all the beautiful places I’ve seen and the “textures” of the people, the cities, the landscape.

Scarves add a lot to an outfit. In fact, they sometimes make the outfit. In the winter, I always wear a scarf because it finishes the “look”. But in the summer, I can’t bring myself to wearing them although a chiffon or silk scarf in the evening would be ok.

So today I’m thankful for all my beautiful scarves and the memories they bring to mind every time I wear them.
