The Power of Bold

I had a vision of a very bold scarf, two colors, two vertical stripes.  The finished product is just what I'd hoped for.

This scarf has been my mindless/on the road knitting over the past few weeks.  It was alternately completely ignored and compulsively worked.

This time of year, mindless projects are welcome.  I've had to battle DD#1 for ownership.  It'll be hers by the end of the week. . .

Yummy Koigu Kersti is so squishy, especially when worked in garter stitch.  And my, oh my those Koigu colors do get me every time!   I was in Purl Soho tonight admiring them again.  One of the gals who works there was pulling out glorious combinations.  I was tempted, but turned to other yarn choices in the end.

My wreath has been so dull, since I have yet to get around to buying a bow.  But no, this scarf belongs around my DD#1's neck.  The wreath will have to wait.

Love the color combo! Too bad, but it looks really good on the wreath. But I am sure it will look better on DD#1.

Yes I can see why there might be a fight over this....very nice!

Great colours, it suits the wreath perfectly!

Very beautiful. I love the color combo and how they both have hints of eachother in them. Those koigu people sure know what they are doing.

I'm not a "yellow person" but I have to admit that "your" scarf is a pure beauty.

have a wonderful holiday.

That turned out beautifully! I love that you had a vision and went for it. I love this scarf!

I love the simplicity and the complexity of the colors! Great job.

It's gorgeous! I want to wrap it around my neck, too!

It looks yummy!
I had to laugh at your pattern! "and go" HAHA! :oD

Happy Holidays!

Oooh! I love the scarf. I also love PurlSoHo, although I've never been there. Their site is one of my favorites. I want to make the scarf! Would you share with me what you did to make it (I guess just how many you cast-on)? Also, what two colors did you use? I know it's a super busy time of year, but if you could email and tell me, that would be so great! I'm such a big fan of your knitting!

Beautiful. I love the fact that even though it is 2 totally different skeins, there seems to be a gradual transition of color. Must be the slight variegation....

I love the colors and that yarn looks super cushy. It makes a nice wreath bow too. :)

what a pretty scarf! DD#1 is a lucky girl!

I love your use of the knitting. I think it's an original! I love Koigu, too!

lovely!! i love vertical stripes scarves :-) gorgeous!

that is so lovely. what a simple project with fabulous results!

How elegant! It shows off the beauty of the yarn perfectly.

I really love this one!

I've never knit with Koigu Kersti, but after seeing your scarf, I just may have to...it's so pretty!

Love the way you´ve used the scarf as a ribbon on the wreath ;) Just wanted to say hallo from Sweden.... Best wishes from Maggan

Fantastic! I love the sorbet colours.

Once again you rpove yourself to be a color maven--love it!

Ok, that should have been 'prove'!

that is an awesome scarf and so insanely simple.
