I made this simple wool scarf from an old skirt that I've had hanging in my closet for years. It was a long, nearly floor-length A-line skirt. It was beautifully tailored and made of very fine merino wool in this fantastic plaid. But I never wore it. Literally, I don't think I ever once put it on. The style of the skirt just wasn't me. Dilemma. Do I repurpose it in some way that I can enjoy it? Maybe somebody else could get more use out of it as a skirt? I was loathe to cut up such a finely-made garment, and more than a little afraid to go at it with scissors, lest I completely botch the whole thing. Then I realized I was overthinking it, as I generally do. Cut, cut, sew, sew, and I've got a scarf that I know I will use all winter long, as well as a few scraps left over for some other little project. It feels a bit luxurious, but we all need a bit of luxury, yes?
