About once a year I get the itch to knit or crochet. I am TERRIBLE at knitting. I am much less terrible at crochet. I've managed a whole slew of scarves of various lengths, colours and simple patterns.
I've made a few short scarves to turn into cowls. I was debating whether to add buttons, sew the ends or add a brooch and decided to experiment.
I made a large sort of stick pin with a pointed dowel and a slice of wood. (I know there's a name for this sort of simple scarf pin but it totally escapes me... do you know what it's called?)
I notched the end of the dowel to give a flattened surface for the round to sit on then simply glued them in place.
Next to paint them with moons and stars... because that's what I like, baby.
I'm pretty sure these will also replace the pencil that is usually holding my hair bun in place.
It's currently -10C here and I am sorely tempted to wear every one of these scarves all at once.
Stay warm and keep crafting, my friends!
