it sounds like some of you are feeling like you want to embrace the habit and others are just plain frustrated.
All scarves are not created equal...there are stiff ones, soft silky ones, woolly bulky ones and then there are those easy infinity scarves.
Infinity scarves put simply are the easiest scarves to wear.
They require very little fuss are a quick way to add a splash of colour to your basic outfit.
They also make great gifts, and as a scarf lover I welcome them into my wardrobe.
Here is a quick and easy way to tie a longer infinity scarf...it is the way that I wear mine.
Place the scarf around your neck.
I am using the bed as it is easier to show the technique.
Pull at the ends so the bulk of the scarf drapes a bit.
Cross over in front of neck
Cross over again
loop the lower circular opening back over the head
shift the scarf around
(until you have achieved the desired effect)
the feature twist could be off to one side
or centre it in the middle
You may even prefer it to rest atop the shoulder...
it is a simple tie that you can adapt to other scarves too.
If you have a large silk square you can tie two ends together to form an infinity scarf and proceed as above.
I hope that this answers your questions and that you'll have fun wearing your Infinity scarves and perhaps you'll have fun wearing some of the other options and learning new techniques on how to tie them.
Hermes has scarf tying cards and there are many many great tutorials on You Tube.
You can spend hours learning new ways to tie this simple accessory.
The important thing is to have fun.
Throw one on and forget it.
Before you know it
you will be giving lessons to your friends!
The view of Cedar Hill Golf Course yesterday afternoon...
so blue and no filter was used...just my IPhone camera!
I have been sidelined with a shoulder issue.
"Frozen shoulder" is the diagnosis and I am in a lot of pain and my range of motion is not great.
Physiotherapy, massage therapy and a series of X-Ray guided cortisone shots sound like they are in my future.
I am waiting for referrals to go between the medical specialists and am trying to be "patient!"
I am not good with pain and am not used to being "a patient."
So if my posts are sporadic you will know why...

I am currently reading The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton.
It is an engaging story...full of layers and lots of detail.
Many people had difficulty trying to get through the book and from what I gather it is not to every one's taste.
I am on page 150 and so far have not felt like it is a slog.
Will let you know what I think when I finish the book...it is 822 pages so it might take me awhile!
Be Well and Be Kind.
