Having realised just before Christmas that the crochet spiral scarf I was making would not be ready in time for the family Kris Kringle, I needed to make something to replace it.
I have a sizable collection of silk swatches and remnants, so I looked through those to see what would look good together. Some shot wine silk chiffon overlaying a pale pink silk satin from a friend’s wedding dress, some striped swatches, remnants from a previous designer client and a previous project of my own …
It all added up to a rather luscious silk scarf that more perfectly suited the recipient than the original idea would have, I think.
Especially since that turned out like this:
Rather more over the top than I had originally imagined. Almost ’70s funk, really. Don’t get me wrong, though; I like ’70s funk. I’m busy writing up the pattern now, for a future posting, so stay tuned!
