End Notes:

I wore essentially this same outfit back in December. It’s a collection of neutral basics that form the perfect backdrop for a focal point scarf. Last time I used two colored scarves to add some brightness, but today I stayed monochrome and used this thick infinity scarf, sent to us by the gracious Margie of Kangaroo Knits, to add such volume and texture.

This reversible scarf — black with a silvery gray edges — has a wonderfully substantial feel and it is dangerously addictive as a plaything. There are an astonishing number of ways to wrap and tie the scarf, and I waffled between a lush cowl or a more tightly wrapped collar.

Either way, it’s a fantastic, multifunctional accessory and cozy to boot and I wish I could keep it permanently. Yes, it’s true. This infinity scarf will be up for grabs as our final Friday giveaway of scarf month so be sure to check back to enter.

(Of course, if you can’t wait til then, Margie has some gorgeous colored versions available as well! Saffron! Turquoise! Salmon! Gah!)

    February 2010 – To Infinity academichic. And I actually do
    have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or does it look like some of the comments appear as if they are coming from brain
    dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to follow anything fresh
    you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete
    urls of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or
    linkedin profile?
