Warm & Cozy

November 16th, 2013

I finished up my scarf yesterday morning, it’s just what I wanted. The scarf is long, and it will be joined into a large circle to become an infinity scarf. It’s an idea that appeals to me because I hate it when my scarf blows around, this way I won’t have any loose ends. This will also make it super warm, I’ll be able to wrap it around my neck twice.

I’m going to join the two sides with buttons, then I can wear it as a regular scarf if I want. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I LOVE buttons. I’m lucky enough to have received both of my grandmother’s button collections as well as my great aunts. After opening up my grandmother’s jar I found these two beauties inside.

These may be the ones that grace my scarf, or I may cut small discs from a birch branch to make birch buttons. But I rather like the little piece of history that these carry.

Are you a scarf wearer, or do you prefer other methods to keep your neck warm?
