Now more than ever, we need some COLOR!

Here we are, heading into the dreaded PARKA season (how I envy the fashionably coated fems on the #66 – and there are some beauties out there this year!), while I’m wrapped from head to toe in navy, brown or black, and it’s time to do something…


I got started on this scarf while I was visiting Northern Michigan – this is some Diakato (sp?) yarn (color 41) that jumped out at me while I was shopping one day. Can I spell b-l-i-m-e-y? You bet! And burgundy and bright turquoise and orange and shocking pink. AND more variations of lime/kiwi/green than you can shake an entire forest at.

Believe it or not, the green is the Neutral in all this. Just like in nature, where the color of the leaf or stem doesn’t subtract or clash with the flower and bud, the Greens in this yarn mix blend those BRIGHT colors together into a funky wearable Whole. Might just work with my burgundy bucket hat OR (and I have my fingers tightly crossed for this) if I have enough yarn, I can make my favorite hat
