I've had a real yearning for bright, rich colours lately (probably because of all the dull grey days).. and for interesting shapes and textures. So playing around with all these scarves suited my mood perfectly :)
The third of my scarves..
|Layer 1 tangerine merino.. |
forgot to photograph it but I filled the holes with raspberry pink merino
|Layed out in a nice curvy, lazy S shape|
it was just over 7 foot long measured straight
(following the curves about a foot longer I'd guess)
|Covering the second layer (which was burnt orange with pink blobs)|
|Scattering loads of gold and a little orange tussah silk over the third and final layer|
|Drawing a simple design in raspberry and pink merino |
highlighted with magenta tussah silk
|I cut a pattern of holes in three places along the length of the scarf, |
healing the edges as I went along (but I forgot to take photos)..
And I made a cut up into the thin end so it hangs in two points instead of one
|The back.. this was the first layer I layed down|
Though it doesn't actually look much like a Tigerlily :) that was the inspiration..
Lovely flowers.. I used to have a big pot full of these in the garden, but I think they died last winter.
Today I think I am going to do something bright and Hundertwasser-ish :)
