At the age of 55, I am finally trying to teach myself how to work with scarves.  (Better late than never.)

Our first year of marriage nearly 20 years ago, my husband brought back for me from his business travels two beautiful square scarves that I cherish to this day.  I’ve also purchased several long scarves through the years that I thought were pretty.  But as much as I love and am intrigued with all of them, they’re seldom worn.  Scarves are intimidating!

Thank goodness for the Internet, because it’s a wealth of information, including a slew of “scarf how-to” videos and photographs. (Last October, I posted one of them:  “Multiple Ways to Wear Your Scarf”; see it here.)

Inspired by all my Googling, last month I tiptoed back into the scarf kiddy pool–with a large, plaid blanket scarf.  (See the post here).  In today’s post, I’m experimenting with an infinity scarf I found at Marshall’s.  Coming in a future post (I’ll link it here when it publishes), I try out a long, monogrammed fringe scarf that I bought last fall.  That one is so cute!

If you, too, are a scarf scaredy cat, you might Google around the internet yourself.  Because, as I’m finding out, scarves actually can be fun. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
