A Winter Scarf For A Snowy Day...or, My Board Game Scarf.

I made this scarf mostly while playing board games with friends. Sometimes I will get antsy during board games. If I have a strategy, it is nerve wracking waiting through everyone else's turn. Who knows if they are going to make a move that destroys my my careful planning? That is why knitting is perfect for for board games. It is nice to have a way to occupy yourself between turns. I started this scarf in the summer while playing 'Power Grid' after a BBQ. I finished it while playing 'Puerto Rico' on the last day of the 'Great Seattle Snow Storm of 2012'.

Speaking of scarves, look at this one that Kay Francis is wearing.

I don't know if this quite counts as a scarf, but close enough. It looks like it is basically just two dead foxes hanging off of her. Kay Francis is quite beautiful and glamorous but she pulls this off despite the fox scarf not because of it. I love almost all fashion between the 1920's and 1940's, but I just don't get how the whole dead animal thing ever became a trend. It just reminds me of road kill. I realize I am slightly biased because I am a huge live animal fan, but it just seems strange!
These movie stills are from the movie 'Trouble in Paradise.' It is a romantic comedy from 1932. In the 'olden days,' directors really knew how to do romantic comedy's right.
