On my last visit to my LYS, Wooly Wonders, I was offered a knitting challenge which requires me to choose inspiration from nature (plants, landscapes-no people or animals) to design a scarf. Perfect! I have yet to design my own knit, so a scarf is a great place to start. I have also been yearning for a luxurious new scarf and have continually scoffed at all of the beautiful ones being sold in stores, proclaiming, “I can make that myself!”
Just a side note on some coveted scarves:
Carrie Bradshaw’s cabled Chanel scarf in Sex and the City the Movie
Free People’s Druki Pom Pom Scarf in Berry
And yes, I most certainly could make those myself, but that is for a different day. Now, I need to use nature to inspire me, not Chanel. 🙂
So, I’m thinking tree bark…
|Tree bark reminds me of these twisted train tracks.|
Stay tuned, and feel free to send your ideas!
