As usual, spring in Korea arrived without any prenotification. It has been pretty grey and dry last few months. Everything looked quite dead, boring with a zero saturation. All of sudden, greens took over the land as well as the air from, let’s say, about 2 weeks ago. Just like a popcorn pops cherry blossoms are blooming everywhere in just a few days. If I could, I’d definitely gonna stop the season just right this moment. It is just too beautiful, too pleasant, and too exciting that whatever I do now is gonna be successful.
Last few weeks I was grafting hard this extra-toasty scarf as if winter would stay at least 3 full months so I would get to have many days to take advantage of it. But, who knew? All of sudden a heavy scarf is not a hip thing to wear. Today, I need something light and airy for a subtle, stylish exposure of neck area. This fat scarf shows that I am literally over-dressed.
But, here’s one thing that spring could not completely take over yet: wind. Yes, this rather strong wind is calling for a cozy scarf and I could not afford to waste this big chance. So, here I am. In the middle of the glorious windy spring afternoon, I ran out to show off my (heaviest!) winter scarf.
I know it is somewhat funny! How ‘extra-spring cherry blossoms’ and ‘extra-heavy winter accessory’ would go together? Oh, well. But, they did, actually. I really enjoyed the magnificent cherry blossoms in my super cozy scarf. The wind attacked but as you guess I felt heavenly like a bug in a rug.
After all, it turned out today ‘actually’ was the last day to try this on. According to the forecast, tomorrow will be about 80’F(27’C). That would be little too much stretch for this winter accessory. After coming home I block the piece carefully. She will take some summer sleep until next Sep. I guess. At least I am well-ready for next fall. :)
Now, I need to stitch something for a warmer season. As usual, easy and simple but nicely functional. What would you make if you were me? What would be your next project? Any thought? More specifically, what are you making right now?
