Oh those are both great ideas.. I'll give it a try and see how I do. Why are the prettiest scarves always the most slippery?

heyla Batty!

Let's see... um, I do sew a bit as well as knit, but I haven't made any scarves or snoods. I want to, but somehow never do. I like the idea of embroidering things into the hem but for now I've been putting a few drops of EO on the hem before putting my scarf on in the mornings... I pick a scent that will help me focus my intentions for the day.

Clay, i love the eo idea! so simple it is actually something that i will do rather then always think i will.

My hubbie doesnt really have an opinion about my covering, i know that he loves my hair though We tend to do our own thing in regards to our spiritual practices, no doubt we will get into a disscussion on it one day soon, for the moment he only knows some of the reasons as we havent had a chance to discuss. Not because i am ashamed or anything, we just have both been busy.

I was at the mall today and on stopped into Icing on a whim since I saw some cute hats on display.


O-KAY! Super cute tights, we're talking argyle, checked, cabled, colored, striped, herringboned, etc etc.

TONS of hats!

HAIR WRAPS! the kind you see on Tznius.com and Covermyhair.com

Hard head bands!

Scarves!

holy cow it was a covered girls dream come true.

When I was married to DH1, we were part of a community where married women were expected to cover. He would have been OK with me covering or not, but there was plenty of community support for covering (and it would have been awkward socially if I hadn't.)

When I was with DH2, I didn't cover because I was in a very different place in my life. He wouldn't have cared either way though.

IIRC, you DO cover now, even being divorced, right?

Guess where I'll be looking. Park City does have an Icing shop, yes? (I still think of it as Claire's LOL! Showing my age!)

Yup. I never stopped covering in synagogue (although there were years when I hardly went) and felt drawn to cover again in the last few years. We moved into a community with a healthy Orthodox population a little over 3 years ago and I slowly started coveirng again. According to Halacha (Jewish Law), married women cover, unmarried women don't, and there's a lot of leeway for divorced women.

I think the one in PC is a Claire's actually. So is the one in the outlet mall. Not sure, though. Want to check it out? We can make that mall trip a reality!

I would certainly love to :
post #152 of 1083
Hah. At our mall (and the malls back home in CA) Claire's is the "younger" store and Icing is for, er, more mature tweens???

For clarification purposes, it's not like I frequent this store with any regularity I just happened upon some apropos accessories for this moment in my life.






also, it was a "mama needs an afternoon to herself" day, so I was shopping alone. It was delicious and glorious.

We all understand those, "mama is escaping" moments

I got some covers in the mail

I think I like the Garlands of Grace quality and feel the best. I got two snoods in the mail and one headband type thing. I think I don't like the way the snood looks on me. I prefer the back of my hair showing. I look like a gypsy in a snood. I like the hair covers. I think you have to try the different kinds.

Hey there!

Its so nice to read all your comments about covering.
I'm relatively new to the head covering thing but do it almost full-time (I always cover when I'm out of the house but sometimes take it off when I'm home alone).

I'm the only one in my church who covers (Presbyterian). I don't mind though.

I'm not a mom (yet) but I've been dying to find a community of gals who cover.

So glad to meet you all!

Welcome!

Deedee, I'm Reformed as well And the only other headcoverer in our church, other than the occasional visitor, is our pianist. I was part of a Presbyterian church not long ago though where EVERY female covered.

So I posted about this in the pagan covering thread, but thought I'd share here too. I had to get my driver's license renewed (I turned "older" yesterday and my card expired) and they took my photo again. So now I'm a covered mama on my driver's license.

I don't live in an urban area but the staff at the DMV basically ignored me "as a person" and didn't ask any questions about the scarf. Of course, the picture is about as good as any "official" picture but still.

i am a covering pagan and i have my scarf on in my drivers license also..
there is a pagan covering thread?
post #159 of 1083
uumomma- it's here, in Religious Studies. The Spirituality forum is "support only" while Religious Studies is more "polite debate welcome" so threads with similar topics often show up in both forums depending on what the person starting the thread is looking for.

General covering- I've started knitting a few scarves and snoods. I think Battymama mentioned up thread that she has done this too? Does anyone else make their own coverings? Do you wing it or do you copy coverings you really like and have purchased?
post #160 of 1083
Twice, they've mentioned my covering, but more as a statement..."your scarf, covering, etc, that is a religious covering?" Yes. "Okay." This last time, no one asked.
