Another of my Collections/Addictions

Scarves.  There, I said it.  In addition to my obsession with measuring cups, pottery, jewelry and shoes, I also love scarves.  At least here in Alaska, scarf-wearing is a year round activity, so I can almost justify every purchase.

I know what you're thinking.  Vicki, you knit your own scarves -- why do you need scarves made by other people?  Well silly, I knit wool scarves.  Those are simply not suitable for warmer weather.  Hence, I need silk scarves and lightweight woven scarves.

I found this great shop on etsy, Scarf Guy.  Back in March, in preparation for warmer weather, I purchased two gorgeous scarves from Fred, the Scarf Guy.  His weaving is of impeccable quality and I'm thrilled with both of my scarves.

This first one is a blend of silk and cashmere and is incredibly smooth and soft. 

This one is also silk and cashmere and is a deep chocolate brown.  Yum.

Please visit Fred's shop to see (and drool over) his beautiful work.
