Variation on a theme

Through the years and years (and years) of flute and piano lessons I took, it seems like I was always playing some "Variation on a Theme" or other. Here's my latest take on neckwear, looking eerily similar to the pumpkin colored one a couple of posts back. This time, there's no extra that just gets caught in my coat zipper anyway.

Seriously, if there's one thing (or three) I need this winter it's a warm neck (and hands, and feet). Thank goodness I live in Virginia, the midwestern cold growing up nearly froze me to death. I even got frostbite one winter on my earlobes while skiing. Well, that was Colorado, wind chill was -30. I'll never forget it.

The little cowl is made with that oh-so-wonderful Inca cotton I bought a while back. I have another skein of it sitting here waiting for me that's variegated--carmel and cream--soooo pretty. If you take a close look you'll see it's closed with two vintage mother of pearl buttons that keep piling up somehow and spilling off of my workspace.

Very nice.

My ears are the most susceptible- not the outside, though. I get earaches in the wind- even this summer at the beach. So I should probably make some head/ear bands, huh?
