Trend Spotlight: Scarves
This morning was stupid cold. I said that out loud to myself in the car. "Morning! You are stupid cold!" I searched my car for a scarf because I knew that would help, but nothing. I thought about stopping at the thrift store to buy one on my way to work, but decided all the scarves there likely smell like cats. The place to get a unique scarf will likely be next weekend's Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts Fair.
The first stop I am making for a scarf at the fair has got to be Pidge Pidge. Vanessa designs modern scarves that merge the craft of traditional weaving with a funky color palette. She weaves every scarf using a slow, detail oriented process with a variety of fibers including organic cotton, recycled yarn and hand spun wool. Amazing.
Maryink is a screen printing company out of Nashville, TN. They love to use ink blends to create a color-shifting print like on this awesome scarf.
Becky Helms crochets with simple silhouettes and unique color palettes. Her designs range from eye-catching cowls to comically large scarves. Comically large sounds WARM!
