All of the beautiful, useless things
That a vagabond’s aimless drifting brings.

A sailors forecast.
My father loved to predict the weather. One rule of thumb was if you saw a pasture where the cows were all laying down, that means it will rain soon. Another was to remember this saying:
"Red sky at night, sailor's delight.
Red sky in morning, sailors take warning."
These persimmon colored scarves remind me of those ominous red skies seen at sunrise.
Madder, Cutch and Quebracho Red were used here.
