Sky Scarves


A few of our Wednesday Lunch Bunch ladies have decided to look at the sky every day this year for the sake of knitting scarves.



Each day's sky color is represented by two rows in the scarf; and since two strands of yarn are held together, two different colors can reflect that day's sky, such as blue and white for a partly cloudy day.

Some of the yarns Twist carries that have been chosen for the above scarves are Prism Merino Mia, Louisa Harding Willow Tweed, and Lang Jawoll Solid Superwash.  

The idea for creating a Sky Scarf originated with Lea Redmond of LeafCutterDesigns.com.  She is making a simple garter stitch scarf, but a couple of our knitters have chosen to knit their scarves in seed stitch or chevrons.

So far, the ladies have completed at least a full month of rows.  Good luck in your progress, and let's hope no green sky, tornado days find their way into the scarves.
