You may remember this handspun crepe yarn I created awhile back.
The main colors are inglenook batts and the third single is my own hand dyed silk hankies. I had intended to knit it into a cowl, and I did knit all the yarn. And then at some point I realized that I was just sitting on an almost finished object but had an odd mind block about it. It sat and sat and it took me awhile to figure out why. Why? I didn’t want to connect it into a cowl. It was a gradient, and I didn’t like the idea of the dark purple seamed with the blush color I began with.
Once I figured that out, I decided the best option would simply be to cast off, and allow it to be a gradient scarf.
And that was that! I do like the gradient scarf look, and I think I am far more likely to wear it that way than I would have been as a cowl.
