Meet Me in St. Louis

with 4 comments

I have decided that I am a little bit in love with Judy Garland’s scarf/wrap/kerchief thingy in Meet Me in St. Louis.

I first saw this movie in a film class my freshman year in college.  Ever since then I’ve watched pretty regularly every Christmas (and I always text my freshman room when the trolley song comes on).  This year, I kind of fell in love with her headwear.

It has metallic threads through it, clips under the chin rather than ties (which at first glance is what it looks like it would do) and looks like it was knit with such warm and cozy yarn.  Plus, it looks like it would keep your ears warm without wrecking your hair!

Isn’t it lovely?

This might be a knitting project for me this winter.

And I can’t possibly end this post without letting you hear the song:
