Crazy iHanna Scarf

I think spring is on the way. We’ve got daylight a lot longer now, the sun is out more and the Crocus in full bloom. But yesterday it was actually snowing (!) when I was out walking. That reminded me that I have a finished knitted project to share, one that I photographed earlier. It was one of the few days we’ve had a lot of snow this winter, so I best share it before summer I thought… And a finished knit! It does not happen often, so it’s something to celebrate.

I affectionately call this one the Crazy Scarf, because it is such a crazy mix of yarn qualities. I assembled them from my stash way back when, but forgot to finish the started project last winter… But now it’s done!

The scarf turned out a bit crazy indeed, just as I intended. And it’s probably way too much for most people, but I harbor warm feelings for it. And in it, I will keep warm. Here are some more photos, because styling DIY style is fun!

the Details

Name: the Crazy iHanna Scraf
Yarn: Wool (Lovikka and other kinds) and a diversity of fancy acrylics – just a bit of everything that I have collected over the years. Prerequisite: that the yarn was happy, colorful and fun
Pattern: My own. I knitted until I could wrap the scraf twice around my neck
Colorway: Mostly magenta pink, sunshine yellow, some green and a bit of kool aided apricots too
Time: Started in 2012, finished January 2015…

I hope I’ll get to wear it more next winter. And in the mean time I have turned to crocheting with yarn from my grandmother’s stash. Not as colorful, but still yummy wool and lovely to handle. I’ll share it when I finish it, in a few years or so… ;-)

Be well my dears, Happy April and Happy Easter!
