Falling Water Scarf

A while back, I posted that I was thinking of making the Falling Water Scarf with some lovely purple sock yarn I got at Stitches West.

My friend Lisa (who never comments here -- ahem) did that very thing! And here is her lovely daughter modeling said scarf:

Falling Water 2

Lisa sez:

"When I read your blog a month or so ago, you had just brought some very cool yarn and you were contemplating what to do with it. You pointed to a few patterns for a scarf that you were considering. I loved one of the patterns, so used it on some yarn of mine. Once I made the scarf, I realized it probably would look better as a solid color, rather than this Koigu thing I did, but trust me, it looks absolutely gorgeous with my light blue winter jacket. I finished up the scarf in Hawaii and thought I would just block it, then put it away til next fall. Little did I know we would get an inch of snow a few days ago, and it came in handy while I was walking the dogs (in my winter parka) at 6:00 am."

Lisa lives in Minnesota. 'Nuff said.

I guess I'd better get busy turning my own yarn into this scarf, now.

  • Hey Annie - I DID try to comment months ago on your blog...but it led me on this long internet journey that forced me to make my own blog account, which I've forgotten, and then I probably gave up and never posted anything. Now that I know I don't have to have my own blog to be a commenter, you will be hearing from me.

    Ten skeins of DK -- you may be living on the edge, AA!! Of course, I tend to over buy something terrible.

  • That is a nice scarf! Of course a dud scarf would look great on the model.
