So, recently I've been making these cowls, and as I stitch away during a free period, meetings, or even at chapel, everyone asks what I'm making, as they often do. But when I try to describe a cowl, they give me the sideways eye and say, "Oh, like a scarf?"What is it that people don't remember what a cowl is? Is it a prerequisite to have been an educated shopper in the eighties to know this? I recently did an impromptu poll of people to find out their opinions of the throwback accessory, and one woman said that they make you look like a pinhead on a pear. I'm not sure about that, and I already have one leg up on the pear-shape...and I'm still not so sure how she came to that conclusion.
So, if you don't have any qualms with this pseudo-scarf, nor are you paranoid about being a pinhead, check these out in my Etsy shop, along with some other baubles for your accessorizing pleasure.
