Knitting the sky—September skies

Sky Scarf through September 2012.
With three-quarters of the year gone, this is the progress of my 2012 Sky Scarf project. It's really looking more like a "garment" than a scarf.

Through my travels as a Blank Quilting fabric rep, I occasionally come across knit shops—or a quilt shop that carries yarn—so I pick up a ball or skein of "sky colors" when I see them. (I am surprised at how many balls I have already used up on this project.) Last week, I lucked up finding Yarn Expressions in Huntsville, Alabama. Greeted with, "Hi there. What can we enable your addiction with today?" from Andrea, a very friendly store associate and passionate knitter, I had to check out what they had. One Sky Scarf find was a soft, steel blue lace weight yarn. I also snatched up a few balls of Muench Maxima, a springy merino wool with a nice twist, that was in their sale bin. (Who can resist a sale, right??)

My plans for the Sky Scarf project are to continue knitting two rows per day—based on the color(s) of the sky—for the full 365 days. As one of my Facebook friends said, "it's not just a scarf anymore, it's an adventure."

Carry on!
