I have a confession to make. I’m a 90 year old grandma….Maybe not, but I at least act like one! When winter weather comes around (even though it’s still Autumn) I like to rug up at home with a cup of earl grey tea and my knitting. I absolutely love hand knitted scarves, and all scarves in general. They are my accessory of choice in the cooler months and what I wore on this rainy day in Adelaide.
I think it is so easy to do up any outfit with a scarf draped around your neck – or avoid the dreaded outfit repeat, by changing it up with a different scarf. The texture that chunky knit scarves add makes it a great statement piece, especially in winter when you’re killer outfits can get lost behind the coats you so don’t want to wear over them, but you also don’t like the idea of hypothermia.
When it comes to scarves, and although my friends may tease me for wearing what they call a blanket, I think the bigger the better. Bigger scarves are so much easier to style! I find myself constantly fiddling with smaller, thinner scarves trying to get them to sit right.
If you don’t have the patience to knit your own scarf I suggest hitting up I Love Mr Mittens as they create amazing hand-knitted pieces, not just scarves. I own one of their cardigans (my knitting skills aren’t that advanced) and it is to die for! You’ll see it pop up in a blog post soon enough…
