another scrappy cashmere scarf-

this time for me! With a trip to London looking very likely now, I figured I needed to do some wardrobe enhancement.


I’d been meaning to make this for a few weeks. I made the big decision of what colors to use and laid it out for a general idea more then a week ago- and then it just sat there-


When I heard the news about a possible trip, that was the push I needed and I put it together yesterday. I got some input from Eleanor since she has been wearing her scarf for more then a month now. She suggested that I make it wider. This one is about 14 1/2 inches wide. I put a lettuce edge on it. People think it is hard to do, but really it couldn’t be easier. I do a zigzag stitch around the edge- that is it. The zigzag stitch stretches the knit just enough to give it a ripple effect. What would really be hard would be to put a zigzag edging on a stretchy fabric and not have the waves.

Now I need to make myself a new bag!  Back to the drawing board…

  1. Your cashmere scarves look really warm and spiffy! Hope you have a great time, when I lived in London many years ago I worked in Liberty, an beautiful building and if they have a button selection, ooh even better. I always loved being in the clock room at the British Museum on the hour to hear all the chimes going off. Enjoy yourself and hoping to catch up when you get back.

  2. Gee Mimi, those colors would look great on me, too! I love the lettuce leaf edge, and I had no idea it was that simple to make. I can’t wait to see the bag that you’re working on. You are going to be totally chic in London. :)

  3. Thanks so much!! Lettuce edge. Now I know what to call it AND how to make it. I love your dolls BTW. I call my friends and say check out MiMi’s blog! You’ll pee your pants! ANd they do.
