When I first found Maureen's blog (and at the same time, blogland in general) her Simple Scarf Tutorial was recently posted, and I fell in love with the idea of a flannel and voile scarf. It kind of stuck around in the back of my mind, and like I said when I saw this combination I filed it away in my brain as a good pairing to use. I was in the midst of lots of knitting and sewing for my nieces' birthdays in April, so these got put away on the back burner. I had some fun a few weeks ago making an infinity scarf from voile scraps and quilting cotton, which reminded me of this project. I've had so much on my mind putting together my faculty application packet that I've been all about making small projects this month to take quick mental breaks; this was another great one.
This is a satisfyingly quick project that is a great way to showcase quirky fabric combinations or favorite colors. Everyone loves a scarf, too! At least I do. At one point I was told they were my trademark. That was before I worked full time in a lab with corrosive chemicals. (But I do still like to wear them when I'm presenting group meeting.) I'll be making at least one more, I'm sure.
