I have received and accepted a challenge from a true artist, Kaae.
Under the colorful and ambitious label of ´Bollywood´ meets Scandinavian Knitting she is creating patterns that are original, inspired and her very own - and with colors to die for. She also offers multi-color knitting classes, so are You ever in or near Copenhagen, look her up for a truly inspiring afternoon! Details can be found on her blog.
Back to the challenge - I have been given complete autonomy over which colors I want to testknit her Head Scarf in - I have chosen to work with the Tweed300 yarn as it is a 9/2 shetland, excellent for two-color knitting (and maybe also because YOU HAVE A HUGE STASH!!!, Red.)
Hm. Ok. On with it.
the earthy hues of wet, brown dirt
the spry greens, some that are bitten by frost and turned a little yellow
the warm and light yellow of the early eranthis and white from the snowdrops
And thrown in for hope: purple for the first crocus soon to come.
So, this is my interpretation of Bollywood Spring;-)
Can´t wait to wear it!
