The Girlfriend Scarf

 Yep. We have one of those. It's a really funny story. 

It's not often we move, we moved from Mississippi to Maryland for a year back in 1976, moved back to Mississippi, moved to Avon Lake, Ohio in 1986, moved to Avon in 2012 and moved to Waterville recently. 

Every time we move, I look at this scarf Paul had from before we were married and I ask him, "You still want this scarf"? "Yea", he says. "I'll keep it." 

The 45 year old girlfriend scarf. I think my boys used to wear this while playing in the snow. 

Fast forward to this current move. I'm cleaning out hats, gloves and scarves for the Goodwill. I ask Paul, "You still want this scarf"? 

He says "well, if I ever need a scarf, it's the ONLY one I have since my wife, who's a knitter, has never knit me one. Or anything else". 👀

He's right! This is a man who wears shorts and flip flops in 6" of snow to run next door to borrow a sledge hammer so it never really occurred to me.  

So, my new knitting project is...

Cleveland Brown's Scarf.

I hope you have a good week. 

As always...thanks for stopping by. 


  1. We did used to wear that gf scarf 🧣 (funny the emoji looks the same)

  2. Well that old girlfriend scarf has held up well over the years. How is your Cleveland Brown's scarf coming along?
