Sky Scarf, February, 2012

Today is Wednesday, February 29, 2012. It's obviously a Leap Year, so this scarf with have two more rows than usual. I'm really going to have to come up with some creative ways to photograph this as it gets longer. I'm also afraid that I'm going to run out of yarn. I purchased one hank of each color. However, I have only used the dark grey with the light grey for one day. The grey days just haven't been that dark. I haven't used the dark blue at all. I have been keeping track of the dates and the colors I've used for each day in a little notebook. If someone were to ask my advise on purchasing yarn for this project I would recommend buying only three colors; a medium blue, a white and a medium grey. Since you are using two strands at a time, you are also combining these colors on occassion. This is a fun project, but as with most scarves, it is a little boring. I do like the visual record of the weather. Sometimes we think it's all grey skies here in Michigan and this month has been greyer than last, but we've had lots of sun too. I look forward to starting on March tomorrow.
