Twirling and Swirling
Last year I designed the cream and blue scarf and debuted (and sold) it at the Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash in November. This year, I am excited to have the scarf in blue and green to offer at the 2009 Jingle Bash on November 21 at Sons of Hermann Hall. Both are made from 100% wool then felted through a hot washing and drying process. The spiral is created line by line by going back and forth with a variety of sized stitches. It feels like a very tedious process when you are doing it, but I love the final effect. Check out the item listing to see more pictures. The blue and green version is made from a slightly finer yarn with more color variation from the dying process that give it more depth and variety. The felting process makes it seem more uniform, but color variations are still perceptible.
