you can always rely on your teddy

Well... it is blowing an absolute gale outside, so there's no chance of photographing my latest scarf draped over the fence or a tree! Not that I didn't try.

So I've been driven indoors, and I'm turning to my trusty teddy to help out...

footy curlicue on teddy - close

I'm always looking for alternatives to the 'footy scarf'. Such as the boho footy scarf I made a while back. I understand wanting to support your team of choice by wearing their colours, but there's something about the look of those manufactured football scarves, which just makes me want to cry. They're so... I don't know... generic, maybe?

So this is my curlicue scarf worked up in navy and white... for a Geelong supporter. It's a little bit more sophisticated than your usual footy scarf!

Cute model and lovely scarf.

Since it has now started snowing here I think I'll have a go at one of these scarves - just as soon as I've found some wool that isn't "itchy". I've got some lovely mohair but I know neither me nor my daughter would actually wear a scarf made from it because of the itchiness factor. And the Christmas market isn't that far away so perhaps I should have a go at your 1 hour scarves. Thanks for the patterns and the inspiration.

Oh, thank you for this site! Last winter I learned how to knit and crochet ... this winter I want to graduate from "potholders" to something "real". Thank you for sharing your patterns ... I'm going to try them out ... especially the 3-2-1 curlicue scarf.

Congratulations on being "Blog of Note".

Congrats on Blog of the Day! (That's how I found you.) Your navy and white scarf would also make a fine fashion accessory for Carlton Blues girls like myself :)

laughing purple goldfish said...

shelleyp - actually, given the ratios of navy to white... probably more suited to a blues girl! thanks for stopping by :)
