The Floral Twist Accent scarf…dreaming of the warm day of Spring coming our way, eventually! It is so very cold here today and for the next few days and I couldn’t help but look forward to the warmer days of Spring. Seems to be such a long winter this year and I am impatiently waiting for warmer days of Spring and Summer. I love the look of Winter, but not the cold! I have become a Winter wimp!
To break out for a moment of warm relief this week I was busy designing a nice light acceent scarf that I could wear during these cold days to warm my thoughts of the coming Spring. I started with designing a new base for my scarf. I wanted something that looked like it was twisting, but could lie flat. This gives the essence of a vine twisting and turning up the lattice, in this case your neckline, with the leaves adding the movement and twists along the way. I used a beautiful hand painted merino wool of blues, greens, purples an hints of yellow. If you look closely at the bark on trees, vines or other greenery you see many different colours that combined. I love using hand painted yarns as they add a special unique touch to each piece I make as they are never the same from skein to skein.
The Floral Twist accent scarf can be worn in many different ways and be used to dress up your favourite T shirt, sweater, shirt, or jacket. A touch of bling in the glass button adorns each flower. Various purples were used to make the 3 different flowers on this design. There will be a cotton version as well in neutrals and bright and bolds to warm the day.
Warm up your day and think of the coming Spring! Have a great one!
