Joyful Heart Of Yarn

How about that. I got more and more happy as the pom pons were sewn on to this rather strange scarf. It´s knitted in Malabrigo Rasta and has pom pons from Rauma Finull in eight different colors. It´s sort of clownish and I love it.

It really made me smile - and it made me excited about what I can do with some yarn and needles.

The pattern is from the norwegian book "Strikk i en fei" - or "knit in a hurry". I knitted the scarf in two days total.

It´s about 2.20 meter long and has 16 tips wich are about 18 cm long. Read more and see progress photos in my corner of Ravelry.

This is going to cheer me up as the winter is on it´s way soon. I´ve never figured out why we are supposed to dress in black, brown and grey during winter.

Those are great colors - but not all of us are created to fit them. Just as all people don´t like dressing in colors.

That we are different and like different colors makes our world even more colorful.

But why do we have to put away all our colors and wait for them to come out when spring arrives in about eight months (sigh)?

So lets go for it and get outside the narrow box: Colors in loads to hold on to the summer and the joyful feeling of running along a beach without shoes. I feel like that wearing my new scarf.

  3. That scarf is wonderful. I really like the design. I've noticed though that as I have gotten older I tend to wear more black which someone pointed out to me just the other day.
