I've tried others...
But this pashmina style allegedly suits me the best, so I'm officially ending my search for pashmina hijab styles.

Lookie what I found in Marshall's!
100% silk scarf, I wish I'd looked there for eid shopping.

Mommy's been playing with her headscaves!
So this particular silk scarf was a very nice gift from a fellow student when I was learning Turkish at TAMEF three years ago. I've had this forever, but other than wearing it under turtle necks (which I don't own too many of), I'd never been able to wear it. At a mere 33" it was very hard to extend it long enough to cover my chest if I wasn't planning on wearing an overcoat. Playing around with the new styles I learned from the sweet youtube'ing hijabi sisters, I discovered a new wear to wrap it, so I can leave a considerable amoung of the fabric to drape around the front. I love this new style and love it that I can now buy the smaller square silk scarves I was previously hesitant to buy because of the same problem.

Knocked out!
Today I made my first wrapping video. Between turning the camera off and connecting it to the computer to upload the video, my cute wrappee fell asleep. Yes, it literally took her just that long to doze off!

Iza's Elmo-wearing days
I was practicing a new carry with a wrap and I noticed Iza mimicking me and playing with Elmo and an oblong scarf she found. So I wrapped Elmo up on her back. She spent quite a while admiring herself in front of the mirror.
