You can’t accuse me of being fickle. Fickle flits from one pattern to another. This scarf pattern and I are in a relationship. No matter where my eye wanders, I keep coming back and trying variations in color and pattern to the most excellent Pierrot 29-31. The only relationship as durable as the one I have with this scarf, is my relationship with Catania mercerized cotton. I’m not ashamed to say it. I love them. I’ve proclaimed my love boldly:
- In February, I worked the pattern for the first time. I followed the directions implicitly in an odd colorway of plum, chocolate-brown, off white and grey.
- My second version (first variation) was a “Seascape”. I love it. Maybe my favorite of all of them.
- Third, was in ivory and spring green. Very natural and organic.
- Fourth, my daughter chose the color palette, and so it became “Whitney’s Scarf”. That girl has a wonderful eye for color!
- The fifth version was an Easter edition of the pattern, or as I like to refer to it, “The one that looks like a watermelon.”
And now I’ve finished number six. I like it a lot. It’s more of a winter colorway-crisp, cool and evocative of all things brisk.
Too much? Maybe. I’ll just leave it at “I like it. A lot.”
Each of these scarves will complete their creative journey as a Christmas present. Needless to say, the person who gets number six will have to be very special-at least as special as number six.
