Knit Night

Friend Scarf number two was for Vivien.

Vivien’s style strikes me as classic simplicity. She wears plenty of color, but they never look childish or cheap. They look summery and happy. For her, I needed a neutral with a pop of fun color. Vivien is a dog person, but Feline and Saphire seemed like a good color combination for her.

I knit this scarf through many, many of my daughter’s bass lessons. It also went with me to North Carolina to install my Homefront & Downrange show.Knitting bass

 

As for patterns, I loved knitting Leftie for my mom and was itching to make another in new colors. (The original pattern calls for a plain background and different colored leaves, but I think it looks fantastic with an ombre background and contrasting leaves.) Simple but fun, I thought it would match Vivien’s style well.
