Where'd I Put My Brain This Week?

About a month ago, I ordered some smashing silk charmeuse, with the intention of making another smoke ring scarf:

Despite the fact that I'm going down for the third time on housework, I thought I'd cut the scarf OUT today and have it ready to sew when I get a few minutes. I'll be quick -- whiz whack w/the rotary cutter; zoom zoom on the sewing machine and a pinch of hand sewing and TA-DA! A fantabulous scarf!

Only...I could. Not. Find. My. Pattern.

I finally resigned myself to redoing the pattern and I pulled out that old issue of Threads (half hoping I'd find the pattern stuck there-in, but no luck) and my tracing paper, then realized I'd used up all my available time today.

So I guess I'll have to start w/redrafting the pattern...tomorrow.


  1. Happens to most of us :) That's a pretty piece of silk!

  2. I bought some of that fabric from Fabric Mart. Mine is sitting on the couch waiting for a turn to sit in the closet! *LOL* Can't wait to see the finished scarf!

  3. Actually, now that I have the fabric in hand, I'm almost wishing I'd gotten enough for a blouse! It's soooo pretty!

  4. Hey, I think I remember that scarf article from Threads! I have some silk I have been indecisive about for a long time (years!) The scarf sounds so useful, and cooler weather is upon us when a little layering around the neckline is appreciated.You have inspired me to hunt down the article. Thanks!
