The cold temperatures are coming back, it’s almost here, and that means you’re planning what toasty thingamabob or thingamajig you’ll be wearing around your neck until April. And no, don’t you even think about leaving the house looking like Ernest Shackleton. When you’ve got the right accouterments – not a piece that makes you look like you’ve fashioned a cat around your nape – dipping temperatures can be fun. A warm coat and good boots are essecntial warm gear, but where you can really play up your style is with a scarf. Whether thick or nubby, big and blankety, or thin and silky, a scarf is where you’re personality comes to life during the winter.
Since it’s especially hard to keep your sewing mojo up with it snows, freezes, sleets and rains, I’m offering a very special giveaway. Honestly, it’s one of my favorites to date because it is so specialized and one-of-a-kind. Klara, owner of the Etsy shop Klaradar, is offering one Madalynne reader a hand-painted, sewing inspired scarf. The fabric is pure silk, and she fixed the paint with steam under pressure, which makes the paint part of the fiber. Made in Bulgaria, it is a work of art on par with all of our me-mades. She even finished the edges with a hand rolled hem!
