So I was feeling a little hungry when I named this scarf! The yarn colour is officially called linen – which is nice and all but I really felt like it was a yummy creamy caramel colour.
It’s deliciously silky soft and cuddly – just like the last scarf I made with this gorgeous yarn.
As I mentioned in the last post, this scarf is sporting some super cute buttons – all wooden. A couple of apple buttons (which I’m very partial too – see this post for evidence!), a couple of butterfly buttons picked up at the Mansfield Bush Market, and two very special leaf buttons. They are special because my dear daughter gifted them to me, bringing them back from Japan on her recent trip there. I really had to think hard about whether to use them – but the luxurious silky soft yarn is from Japan, so it felt right. Besides, it just didn’t look quite finished without them.
The unique bit about this scarf is the ‘Apple Blossom’ keeper. I designed it so you can tuck the other end of the scarf through this keeper to make sure it stays together…and in place. For those windy days when you feel like that next big gust will rip the scarf right off and take it whirling through the air. Tis not often this happens but felt like a nice way to add some pretty details to a scarf whilst also adding some practicality. (It’s a weird photo I know, tea canister tucked into the scarf!? What the? but I wanted to show you the keeper/loop bit and couldn’t think of another way.)
So, that’s it for today… off to contemplate the next project – or maybe finish a couple of others still waiting for my return!
I really need to work on that, but finishing stuff is just not as much fun as starting it! Don’t you think?
