Pink Eyelash Scarf

Posted by Nanc

This is the year of fluffy and foofoo girlie scarves. Bright splashes of color and the oh-so-many variations of eyelash and novelty yarns! It’s really quite exciting, you see.

So I had to do my part. The scarf isn’t so bright or foofoo-ey, but it does have the bright pink eyelash yarn going for it and it’s definitely girlie.

I really, really liked how this scarf turned out. It’s oh so soft and cuddly. And the pink “eyelashes” tickle like kitten whiskers. tee hee

I used Trendsetter Yarns&reg Blossom in color #107 (chocolately brown w/ small bits of brightly colored “feathers”). I don’t know what they did to make this yarn, but it’s just luscious! (73%polyamide and 27% viscose, for what it’s worth.)

I knitted a strand of Plymouth Yarn&reg Colorlash in #215 (fushia pink) along with the Blossom. It’s a simple garter stitch (knit every row), with approx. 20 sts cast on. Both yarns were surprisingly easy to work with.

Originally, I was making the scarf for my niece, Julia. Once completed, I didn’t think that she’d enjoy the brown so much. It was a sophisticated, yet girlie-girl scarf – who’d enjoy this?

Happy Birthday, Lindsay! The scarf went to my sil and Julia’s mom. The rumor mills tell me that Julia’s been wearing it too, so I’ve got to get on track and knit up another foofoo, girlie scarf.

I have another skien of the Trendsetter&reg Blossom that I’m saving for me, but I don’t know what I to do with it. Hmmm.
