|All together: Scarf in soft wool, polymer clay sea urchin and polymer clay bracelet.|
Well, a new excuse to buy more yarn. And I found the excuse - I really can not remember what it was... Oh, I think it must be that I wanted a little scarf to go with my orange polymer clay sea urchin and the new bracelet I made.
Etsy in my search for orange yarn. I loved the color scheme and Rebecca dyed two skeins for me.
I think it is magic to get two skeins of yarn just for me all hand painted. A really lovely and soft yarn. And no bleeding at all.
I got an idea of making my scarf special. So I came up with this rather simple design: To add three rings in each end of it.
The rings are knitted in the round. You can se how I did this on my Ravelry project page. The rings are not sewn at all just knitted together like a paper chain.
I did a provincial cast on and as I started on the scarf itself I wrapped the end around the first ring and knitted the live stitches together with the ones at the end of the wrap. Also better (I hope) explained in my project page.
I love wearing it. It is so colorful and the yarn is wonderful. Let´s go orange - whatever that means!!!
