Writer’s Accessory: Litographs Scarf

I was super excited when I received my Litographs scarf in the mail the other day!

As part of Nanowrimo, Litographs were offering writers a custom-made scarf printed with an excerpt of their story. I was intrigued and when I clicked on the link I loved the look of their scarf and the idea of wearing your story around your neck!

I didn’t actually use an excerpt from the story I wrote in last year’s Nanowrimo as that one is still in “draft hell” mode. However, I decided to use the first 30,000 words from another story I finished last year and which has a special place in my heart and it also helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. No matter what happens with that story or whether it gets published, it means a great dealt me and I realised I never did celebrate finishing it. So this scarf is my reward and celebration for finishing that particular story.

I ordered the scarf right before Christmas last year and almost forgot about it until the package arrived in the mail the other day. You can’t tell how excited I was to see the Litographs package in the mail!

The scarf is an infinity scarf with my story printed in Baskerville font in light blue. I love the fabric of the scarf – it is incredibly soft and I can’t stop running my hands over it! Though it’s summer in Australia right now, the weather feels more like a spring day so I could wear my scarf right away. I can’t wait for winter to come though so I can wear my scarf all the time. And it’s a special feeling knowing you’re wearing your own story.

My only small gripe is that the print is quite light and almost smudged so I have to squint to read any of the words. I don’t know if it’s because of the colour I choose and whether a darker colour might make the words much clearer. If I order another Litographs scarf, I might try dark or navy blue and see if that suits better.
