All week, I've been doing spring cleaning. Uh. . . no, that's not something that happens yearly at Chez Snit n'Knit. It's spring 1987 spring cleaning that I'm just getting around to.
Weeding the scarves was one thing on the "to do" list. I love how some women effortlessly and elegantly wear a scarf. I'm not one of them.
So, with that in mind, I was ruthless about purging the scarves. However, one made me pause.
This is a scarf (probably rayon) that I found among my Dad's things when we cleaned out my folks' house. My Pop was certainly not an ascot and smoking-jacket wearer and so I doubt he ever wore this scarf. My guess it was a gift from long ago--1940s or '50s.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but the colors in the scarf are picked up in the Jackie sweater. There's also something retro-looking about both. I think I'm going to have to learn how to wear this scarf!
