While I was in NYC, I bought a scarf from an artist, Lydia Crespo, at Chelsea Market. We talked, and when she found out that I sewed, she asked if I would be interested in her silk scraps. She has a lot and hates to throw them away. I assured her that even though I didn’t need them, one or more of you might love to have them.
I bought the Black Gold Speckled Raw Silk Cape.
Could I have made it myself? Yes. Would I ever make it myself, and speckle it? Probably not. Am I glad I bought it? Absolutely!!! This is the only scarf I own (and I own way too many scarves) that stays where I put it. And it is neither too warm nor not warm enough.
This is also the only scarf I own that has slits that are useful and that disappear when I wear the scarf like a scarf.
So, there you go. If you are interested in Lydia’s scraps, I hope you get some!
