Scarfly Thing - Qualified Perceptions

Scarfly Thing
I found this yarn on last summer's trip to California. I think this particular store was even "Hmm, we're ridiculously early to where we're supposed to meet people for dinner - I wonder if there are any yarn stores nearby", and it had a lot of particularly interesting things in it. The yarn is a knit tape made out of very smooth cotton thread, so it's a bit like ribbon, except actually stretchy. Working with it, it's very smooth and soft, like nice T-shirt fabric, but when knit up, it's much less soft. Not *non*-soft, just sort of normal. The flat picture gives you a good idea of the colors, but when you look at the object, it isn't really clear what it is or how to wear it. So here's another picture of me wearing it - it's sort of like a cross between a little foofy scarf and a cowl. (And I demonstrate that I'm terrible at taking my picture with my cell phone.)



(Oh, and if anyone is thinking "ooh, that is the scarfy cowly thing of my destiny", speak up. :) At some point I should probably stop making things that don't have a designated wearer before I start.)

Is it sort of like a neck gaiter? That's pretty cool.

Ooh! It is! I had no idea that was a thing!

Neck gaiters are awesome! They are an essential component of my Canadian winter gear :)

Do you want this one? I'm not sure it would be sufficiently defensive against a Canadian winter, being cotton, but if you ever needed a Dress Neck Gaiter, it probably qualifies. :)

Ooooh, really?? Yes yes yes! :)

Can I paypal you the shipping costs? I doubt it will be expensive since that doesn't look heavy, but still...alternately if there is anything you would like from Canada, we can do a swap?

One of these days, I want to try poutine, but I suspect it would not mail well at all. :)

It's something like two ounces, so it should be cheap, but sure, if you send me your address I can let you know how much shipping ends up being and you can paypal me.

The Foundry sells poutine, I believe.

Looks great! Very elegant. Also looks like you got slimmer. :-)
