All Tied Up

DSC_0082Let’s talk about scarves, shall we?

I’ve noticed that there are some people who have that certain flair with scarves. Honestly, I think they could tie a plastic garbage bag around their neck and it would look good.

I am not one of those people.

I have scarves.

I like scarves.

But every time I pick up a scarf my mind goes blank.

How do you tie this thing?

I’ve googled “how to tie a scarf”.

I’ve pinned “100 ways to wear a scarf”.

I’ve even had my daughters teach me everything they know.

Still – I don’t feel comfortable. Maybe it’s because when I do wear a scarf the girls take one look at my awkward attempts, sigh, and then reach over to fix it.

I recently discovered a quick and easy tutorial to make an infinity scarf.  It’s basically a long tube that you wrap around your neck.

Thinking this was surely something even I couldn’t mess up – I made one and ran up to model it for Angel Girl.

“See,” I demonstrate, “even I can do this! You wrap it once or twice.”

I smile.

She smiles.

Then I wrap it once more.

“I can even wrap it three times!”

I smile.

She frowns and shakes her head.

Oh bother.

Guess I’m still scarf dependent.
