Walking around at Purdue in cold weather is always an enjoyable experience....the wind going straight through you, the shade of red my ears turn before they completely freeze and feel like they are about to crack off...etc. But there was something today that lifted my spirits. Okay, scratch that. There was something today that made me laugh. A guy. In a scarf. That was made of eyelash yarn.
Man Scarf Law #1. Men are to never EVER wear a scarf of any sort of novelty yarn.
Man Scarf Law #2. I don't care if your girlfriend made it, I said never.
Man Scarf Law #3. Varigated is okay, as long as it is subtle. Hot pink to lime green to highlighter yellow is not only over the top, it's also something a man should never wear. If I ever see this guy again, I will take a Sharpie and write EPIC FAIL on his forehead. Moving on.
Man Scarf Law #4. Stick with natural fibers in natural colors. Wool is good, so is cotton, linen, bamboo and other plant fibers. Angora and mohair is a bit over the top. I draw the line at cashmere, which is still a little fluffy for guys, but that doesn't matter. The man who wears a cashmere scarf has got taste. And I am single.
Man Scarf Law #5. These first four rules do not apply to bisexual or homosexual men. I do love my gay friends and thier fashion statements.
That's all I can think of right now...feel free to add your own!
Happy knitting and have a great day!
