How do you wear a scarf?

Spring is in its full glory – warm days, more daylight and working barefoot. So, now that I can't wear one of these scarves, at least I can think of different ways of tying them. I remember while staying in Madrid for some months (way back in 2001), one of the things that caught my attention was how the majority of people wore scarves tied like in the centre image, 2nd row (scarf folded in the middle and ends pulled through the loop.) I thought then "That's a knot you don't see in Santiago..." Almost a decade later, it's definitely one of the popular ways of wearing scarves here. Do you have a favourite style for tying scarves?

i just discovered your blog through at-swim-two-birds. You make beautiful pieces! I always wear scarves, but i never really think about how to do so. i usually don't like knots when i'm wearing a jacket, so i just swing it around a little.

Hi Karen,
I was wondering if you stand at the desk pictured above? Or is it a sit down desk?

Nicole – This is a sit down desk, it's around 70 cm high. When I took the picture I was seated at it, pulled the chair back and stretched my legs onto the bottom board. Funny how perspective in images can totally distort things.
