A Scarf is Born

My ideas for the style and look of my scarves come to me at different points in my yarn hunting process. Once in a while I have an idea of what I am going to make. But the fun part is when I walk into the store without a plan.

In the store I walk around. Looking at every section of yarn available and touching every one of them. The touch is what leads me to really know what I might create with it. Whether it will be a ruffled looping mass of wonder or smooth simple scarf. Recently I found pinks.

And Now I love Pinks. I was a girl who rebelled against pink. I refused to wear it cause it was a girls color. Then sometime around my late twenties I discovered it and can't get enough. I don't have pink walls and furniture I am not that huge of a fan. My bath towels are white, my sheets are blue and my house for the most part is neutral, earth tones. But pink... I will wear all year long.

However, every now and then the FIRE wants to come out and I want people to see me coming. So Red it is.

And red is what I picked up the last time I went shopping. This go around I took my time picking the style scarf I was going to create. Would it be flat and smooth or cascading with ruffles and loops.

I couldn't decide so I made two different styles. But instead of just red I gave it a twist of Indie "rock-a-billy" flare. One scarf with its Checkered White and red stripe reminded me of Dice hanging from a classic hot rod. The other had a more subtle 1950's flare of a night at the drive-in theatre.
