I Caught A Rainbow

Right now we are drowning in snow. I simply do not like to be snowed in and have to shovel snow every other hour to just get outside.

Well, enough about that awful winter - nothing to do about that. Other than knitting and drink hot coffee.

As you can see I managed to get my latest scarf photographed before the blizzards. It is, no wonder, another hitchhiker scarf. With a variegated yarn in rainbow colors it simply works perfect.

So does the fact that it is mindless, easy to take with me and actually is fun to knit as well.

I have never tried Shibui yarn before. It was certainly about time getting that on my needles. They have all these wonderful colors just crying to be knitted.

I used up four skeins of the color Spectrum, and one skein of the color Anime. I wanted to combine those two and found them to be a perfect match.

I used the most of the Spectrum before starting on the Anime and mixed in some rows of the spectrum to add some more life with a few stripes.

I am excited about these colors and the yarn was nice to knit with. It got really soft after a round in soak.

Now lets see - we are promised a lot more snow the next week. We are promised a lot of wind as well. That means snow shoveling, traffic chaos and a long wish for summer. I just want to knit and forget all about those promises...

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in in an invincible summer

  4. Hei Lone
    Enda et nydelig sjal med din signatur på. Liker måten sjalet er designet på, asymetrisk. Blir så fint å tulle rundt halsen, der fargene blander seg så fint i hverandre. Fin match du har der.
    Ja, snø..........hater det jeg også! Her har det kommet så mye. Jeg har fri fra jobb i dag, men må nok ut å måke litt i dag. Ellers står det strikking på tidsplanen, for det har det ikke blitt så mye av den siste uken.MÅTTE bare starte opp et nytt prosjekt i går...ho ho.....klarte ikke holde meg lengre.
    Ha en fin HVIT dag, og lykke til med måkingen. Klem

  5. Fantastic combination, I love that you didn't use the two colours in a 50/50 ratio but rather 1/5 ratio, it makes such an interesting combination. Gorgeous to keep you warm while you showel the dreaded snow

  6. The colors are really lovely together! Some posts back you showed a scarf you knitted half one color, half another that looked like two colors when worn. It inspired me to try to create one using some leftover yarn I had. It came out nice--nothing as professional as yours, but if I every get a free moment this week, I'll show it on my blog!

  7. Sikke en lækker effekt, med den ene farve til sidst. Den skal jeg huske. Der står faktisk et nøgle Kauni ovre i hjørnet, der skal blive til et hitchiker. Det bliver nok her i foråret.

  11. Så herlige farger det var i dette sjalet! Likte godt at du har laget det mer rødt i den ene enden og turkis i den andre. Det ga en spennende effekt. Her laver det ned, ser ikke ut som det skal ta noen ende dessverre. Heldigvis måker gubben :)
