Scarf 2: Would you care for some coffee with your cream?

Can you see the slubs? The hand-spun cotton of this scarf is a dream. In fact, this whole scarf is a dream. It all began on a Thursday (cue dream sequence fading) . . .
Late Wednesday night, I had the idea for the 100 Scarves Project. On Thursday morning I woke up and went straight to my loom. I warped up this scarf and got busy weaving. About two hours later my stomach started grumbling and I realized I was still in my pajamas and hadn't eaten breakfast! That's how much I love this scarf. It's better than breakfast. :)
I was going to a game night get together on Friday so I hurried to finish it. I took it to the party fresh from the loom (unwashed, unironed, untrimmed) to show it off and one of my friends immediately wrapped it around her neck (several times - it's very long) and exclaimed, "This is perfect! I want a scarf exactly like this!"
I was sad not to give it to her on the spot, but I had already given Scarf 1 away and I needed to hang on to a few scarves if I was going to get this business going. I spent the next two weeks photographing it all over my house and yard, in every light possible, trying to find the perfect spot.

If you're interested in purchasing this creamy, lovely, slubby, perfect scarf, you can find it here in my Etsy shop.
