woodlands scarf

http://humanhabitatservices.com/70180-selsun-shampoo-uk.html screen it is always so interesting to me

http://cannabisindustry.blog/42829-nizoral-canada.html to see where an idea started and how it ends up.

http://revisphone.com/36033-nexium-generic-cost.html today, swan’s island company released their fall 2016 collection.

stugeron forte price my ‘woodlands scarf’ is one of the pieces.

find here if you like the ‘behind the scenes’

cytotec for sale part of stories, here

it comes.

i thought that swan’s island was looking for patterns for their bulky weight yarn.

i was wrong, but that’s what i thought at the time.

i love chunky yarns and that attracted me.

so, i sussed out a new cable swatch and sent it along to be considered.IMG_2115sq

and they wanted it in the collection,

but in worsted weight yarn.IMG_1474sq

submitting designs is funny like that.

i once had a super bulky weight design accepted,

but was asked to rewrite the idea for a dk yarn

and you know what? i couldn’t picture it, but it looked great.

creative directors have visions for things that

i can mostly not even begin to imagine.

i just love the woodlands scarf stitches all done up in worsted.IMG_2116sq

in natural colors merino worsted,

both the yarn and the stitches shine, but

i never would have thought to try it without a little

push in that direction.

the photo above is the center back of the scarf.

you knit from both ends and wind up in the middle

where you graft the two end lengths together

so that the cool cable happening occurs right in the very center of it.IMG_2114 up2as a perk for designing it, i get enough yarn

in the yarn and colorway of my choice,

to knit one to keep.

i chose the same yarn the original is in, because it was so nice.

now, how well do you know me? can you guess which of these

gorgeous colorways i chose for my own?

and which one would you choose?

IMG_1347cropdo you see it?

i am apparently in a bit of a favorite color rut

as these are the colors in my latest project and 3 new designs.

although, ‘rut’ isn’t really the right word for it since i’m happy as a pig in mud about it.

i guess i’m in a red/orange groove.

let the beat play on.
