2008 Weave of the week #22: Playoff edition

Dressed for the game

“It’s not whether you win or lose — it’s what you wear to the game.”  — Vince Lombardi (NOT)

Because the next few weeks will be full of Bowl Championship games, NFL playoff games, and cold weather (well, maybe — it’s 55° here this Sunday night!), it seemed fitting to show off my Home Team Collection™, which is another part of my weaving life.

I started The Home Team Collection™ after envisioning a gold and black houndstooth-patterned scarf inspired by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ uniform colors, but I wanted to make something that you’d be likely to wear in everyday life and not just to the game.

There are three scarf patterns in the collection: houndstooth check, reversible stripe, and the wave. The elegant ensemble shown above is a red and white houndstooth-checked scarf, worn with my husband’s prized vintage University of Arkansas  hog hat.

You can see images of the other designs and samples of some of the available colors on my Gallery pages. These soft, lightweight scarves are made of 100% extrafine Merino wool, spun and handwoven in the USA. The Home Team Collection™ will eventually also include wool throws and stadium blankets, in the same patterns or in solid colors, with matching leather trim and carrying strap.

Wear the colors (sorry, no logos but mine) of your favorite pro, Little League, or school team anywhere you go. For more information about The Home Team Collection’s™ offerings, please use the contact form.
