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.

What a great scarf!

Love this! I especially like it modeling like a bow!

Wow.... I love the scarf, the colours are so perfect. I havn't seen that wool before.

Merry Christmas

Just poking my head in the door for the first time to say, wow--gorgeous sock patterns! I don't know where to start!

Saw your scarf on Ravelry/Koigu Group. It's really gorgeous. Congratulations on a simple, but elegant design!
