Good Neighbors Scarf

This light and airy scarf reminds me of picket fences and neatly pruned boxwood hedges on, let’s just say, a bucolic country lane in a Jane Austen novel. Beads on each edge give it the pleasant sparkle of conversation with neighbors met on a balmy summer evening’s stroll… Or, snapping back to reality, it calls to mind more… dynamic… city …
