About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

The Sky Scarf

I so wish I thought of this idea myself, it is brilliant and the sort of thing I would start (but would I finish?)
Lea from  Leafcutter Designs prepared balls of wool which matched the different colours of the sky. She had 6 different shades as you can see in the photo below. Each day she would look outside to see what colour the sky was that day.  She would then do just two row of knitting each day, matching the colour of the sky with the ball of wool she chose.

Each day has 2 rows of garter stitch completed.

 Here is the pattern if you want to do this yourself! 

Check out her video here where she explains things more fully and shows how she manages all her balls of wool. Instead of one ball of wool, she has done 2 smaller balls so she can do a mix, for example on a blue sky day with some white clouds, she knits the blue and white yarns together that day.

I love this. She calls it 'conceptual knitting'. At the end of the year, it is a 5 foot long scarf!
Fun idea.

  1. What a fabulous idea! I can't knit! :( But what a fun project and a great story behind a pretty blue scarf!


I LOVE to have your comments and will try to answer questions as best I can.
