Brrr. Well they were right about it turning cold today. Brrr. Brrr. And an extra brrr for good measure. Brrr.
Scarf weather? I think so too.

I'm not quite ready for the full on dark side yet. I'm easing in to autumn - season of mists and mellow fruitfulness according to Keats. So I'm in cream and varying shades of grey with touches of black - a little bit softer methinks. Winter will turn me in to the Princess of Darkness soon. Watch this space.
I'm on the lookout for the perfect grey scarf. It looks a lot like the one I'm wearing but is ideally made from cashmere or failing that, a lovely soft fine wool. The one I'm wearing is made from viscose. But until then, this comes close - it has the look I'm going for, but the lightness of cashmere or a fine wool will make it tie better. Go through your scarves and try them - you will notice the viscose pashmina type ones droop and drag a little. This grey one just about passes. Just.
When I sometimes have a problem knotting my scarves i.e. they are too short to knot properly or they are just not playing ball, I employ this little trick.
Now you see it ....
Now you don't!
I get one of those little non-snag hair bands to tie my scarf ends together!
My original use for the snag bands i.e tying up hair didn't work. I have hair as strong as wire - every time I put one on. Ping. Ping. Ping. You give up after a while. But at least I didn't waste the remainder of the pack. Wrap your scarf round your neck as per usual. Bring the two ends together and slip through a snag band where you would have the knot. Cover the snag band with the rest of the scarf. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Bet that's a new one for all you scarf loving gals.
