Apparently I’m unable to stop making scarves from the amazing, lovable color wheel that is Catania cotton. We’re going to chalk this creation up to the anticipation of and appreciation for all things Easter. Not to mention, a symbolic appreciation of the blooms of spring. Although it looks like a watermelon to me.
I like watermelon, it just doesn’t make for a very poetic description.
And I think this scarf deserves a poetic description…So does this egg…
My sweet girl experimented with her egg-dying this year. I love her natural, intuitive creativity
She rocked her eggs…She just rocks in general….It’s an awesome kid that can create this on a whim.
Wonder what I could do on a whim today…. Have a wonderful day, and follow your whims!
Ok, I know. To the naked eye, I look to be in a be bit of a rut. But it’s just such awesome gratification when I complete a variation on this scarf. Not to mention the fact that my dear, sweet darling daughter has been asking for one since the process began. So this is the “Whitney” scarf. She sat down with the rainbow of lovely Catania cotton and chose these colors.
You’ll note that the stitch pattern is very similar to the Spring Green scarf I posted last week. But the color variations bring it a little more into alignment with the Seascape version. Instead of chaining 308 to begin, I chained 208 to adjust for the ten-year old factor.
My child has an eye for color. Always…all her life. This color pallet reminds me of Easter. The pastels and gemtones of Easter eggs nestled in the grass.
Have a great Monday!
Yet another variation on this pattern. The stitches were relaxing. It was a very zen creation. Fewer colors, a single repeat of the lace pattern, simpler edging…
A variation on Pierrot 29-31 that I posted here. You can find the pattern on their site. I love these colors! They make me crave the beach and all things reminiscent of the sea. I used Catania mercerized cotton and I’m experiencing a little mini-obsession with this particular yarn.
Perfect for a lacy all-weather scarf. Let’s play hooky and go to the beach!
