Well the calendar says so anyway. It sure doesn't feel that way outside though. The bits of sunshine here and there are helping but I'm bored with my winter boots and coat. I'm ready to move on to Spring. One way I am ushering in spring even if the weather isn't cooperating is by putting cut flowers near my kitchen sink. Typically I put cut flowers on the table, but keeping them by the sink ensures I get a close up of them several times a day and in this gloomy, cold weather I've needed them. I got this bunch at Trader Joe's for $2.99!
With this colder weather sticking around I came up with a way to make my wardrobe a bit more cozy with some homemade jersey knit scarves. I have a few tshirts that I love but that I never wore because they were either too tight or just didn't fit right so after looking online for a way to recycle them, I made them into scarves. I have been wearing one ever since. Miles even wore one to school today.
This one already had an assymetrical hemline so it lent itself well to a scarf.
It takes about 30 seconds to make one. You just cut the top of the shirt off under the armpits and the bottom hem off. You may need to stretch it out a bit and that's it! I think it would work even better if you had a men's extra large tshirt because then, after stretching it out a bit you may be able to wrap it around your neck a few times.
We wrapped up the hockey season last weekend and are ready to say goodbye to those early morning games. Miles was so sad that the season was over that he cried after the last game. That boys does love hockey.
Now we're gearing up for lacrosse and baseball season with Miles and Ben is doing soccer and an art class. Our lives are about to get a bit busier.
