Thank you Knitted Art for introducing us to conceptual knitting and a very cool project! Here is what it is, copied from Lea Redmond’s homepage
“A Sky Scarf documents the weather outside your window. Each day – rain or shine – you will knit a stripe in colors that match the sky. It will be lovely to see how our different climates result in different scarves! I started mine in the springtime in Northern California and loved watching the colors evolve as the seasons changed. (…) The free pattern includes detailed instructions to make a five-foot Sky Scarf over the course of one year.”
If you need more inspiration, there’s a knitters’ pool on flickr showing all different scarfs, wraps, and blankets and I am very tempted to to a “Berlin Sky Wrap” starting January 1, 2014. It may have plenty of grey though for the first 90 rows …
However, if I had already started it, today’s colors would be blue. Blue as blue can be. Not a single bit of white.
Leafcutter Designs has quite a few other (free creative art) projects that really inspire me to light that “sense of whimsy and adventure” within me 🙂 Maybe I’ll do the Mood Scarf (see picture below) and the Sky Scarf.
I had heard of the mood scarf before, but not the sky one. Seems like a fun adventure! A unique way to remember the past year once it’s done.
