Colour

I love wearing a scarf when the weather turns cold. If my neck is warm, I am good to go. If not, write me off because all I will be doing is obsessing about how cold I am. I'm not just talking about any old scarf either. The scarf needs to cover every square inch of skin not covered by clothing. I've been toying with introducing colour to my range and I have had a beautiful bump of coloured woollen top sitting on my Studio shelf for a while now. It's not enough for a woollie throw but more than enough for a toasty warm woollie scarf.

Here is the pictorial journey of my first coloured Little Dandelion. What do you think? Would you wear it?

I took a moment mid knit to capture this beautiful scene. I am always seeking to feed my crimp addiction.

This photo was taken before the scarf was felted.

One kilo of wool was used to make this scarf. It is long and it completely delivers on the warmth front. I'm not one to wish away a summer but I will happily wear this green beauty all through our coming winter.
