Apparently the Oregon Weather Gods got tired of fellow Oregon blogger, Stacey, and I writing about our recent great weather, because it got cold last night. And, as I always do when it first gets cold, I overreacted:
Did I really need both the sweater coat and a flannel scarf layered over the chambray tunic and jeggings? Maybe not. But, as I said, when the weather drops about 20 degrees in three days, I have a tendency to overreact.
Also, this is the same DIY scarf I wore on Monday, and in Monday’s comments, the Menopausal Super Model asked how I made it. The answer? Crookedly. Actually, that’s not entirely true. In spite of the fact that I can’t draw, cut or sew a straight line (I have SLD, or Straight Line Disorder (it’s totally a real thing)) I still managed to do okay with this scarf by following the lines of the plaid for cutting. It is sewn a little bit crooked though because my left arm is still weak and I can’t guide fabric in a straight line even when I don’t have the excuse of a broken elbow.
The good news is that it’s an infinity scarf and wrapped around my neck you can’t tell it’s crooked, which is why I knew this was the project for me. I got the idea from the lovely Franziska at Franishh, who used this tutorial. I used the same tutorial and it was really easy, especially if you don’t worry about your lines being straight.
|Yep, looks straight(ish) to me!|
Happy Friday, All!
