Nerd or old lady?

I was flipping through the paper and in the Living Section some lady said the “hot new item” this year at the craft fairs would be “pocket scarves”.  Ooh, I though to my self, what’s a pocket scarf???  A quick Google tells me that it’s a knitted or crocheted scarf wrapped loosely around the neck with pockets at the end to keep your hands warm.  My first reaction?  Cool, I can do that!  Second reaction?  How old am I that I’m excited about crochet patterns???

Oh, well, however geeky or old-lady-like it is, scarves are the one thing I can crochet with ease at this point, and this sounds like a quick little project suited for my Saturday road trip to the Husker game. J
