Keep Your Neck Warm


As my creativity is zero right now in the humor department, I’ll share one of my compulsions.

I knit. Alot. Really – very much alot. I have to keep my hands busy and one of the ways that I do this is knitting. I currently have 4 totes of scarves that I’ve made. One of the totes is full of scarves that I have listed in my Etsy shop – HandKnit ScarfShop. The others are waiting to get listed.

My current faves are pullover cowls / neckwarmers made from a really bulky yarn. They’re huge and offer a great deal of neck and throat coverage. I’m big on this – if my neck is warm, I’m warm. They can also be worn multiple ways –  they can lay flat for full neck and throat coverage, can be folded over for a collared look or can be gathered for a looser feel.

Keep your neck warm, look fab and help make sure that my house doesn’t become over run with scarves.

It’s cold outside…


I was raised in Florida. A cold day there meant that I had to wear a coat when I drove my convertible with the top down.

I live in Maryland now. A cold day here means that the heat goes on in mid October. We lived in London for nearly a year. I loved it but it was grey, cold and rainy alot of the time. I feel like I’ve moved back there – the weather here has been horrible – low 40’s, grey, rainy and generally icky.

I’d like a place that stays mid to high 70’s year round. A visit into the 80’s wouldn’t be so bad either. Anyone have any brochures for my ideal place?
