:( I started one for April and it didn't lend itself well to the yarn I had chosen. I'm back to square one without a clue what I'm going to do for April :sigh

Here are the two scarves I have made for April. One celebrates the return of all the pastels into our view of the world and the other is only a foreshadow of the April scarf I hope to make. I want something to represent rain. I had a cute idea for a raindrops and umbrella scarf but that isn't quite it either. Well whatever... I will keep thinking for the rest of the month and hope that inspiration and yarn come together.

 

I Love my pastels... well ok love primary colours too... and um jewel tones are so precious... well you know what I mean...

The flower is the Keyhole for this scarf

This one is just a nice little bit to have around your neck to keep out any lingering chilly air. I made the hat and had to bust the rest of the skein so this little scarf came into being. It has that liquid quality that some yarns can have so I felt that it qualified for an April Scarf.

The funny thing is that I still have yarn and I am making another light weight scarf for the stashbusting score I can get from it. :wlol

 

Speaking of which... I think I am going to have to shop for some yarn and let the yarn inspire me. Ocean might be good... hmn :think

Love the scarves!

 

My April one from a partial skein I had. Not the scarf I wanted to make or the yarn I wanted to use, but I think it came out okay :)

that is so neat. I love the way the background of your album seems to have every colour from the scarf. Totally Wow!

 

I don't seem to get those neat patterns formed with my varigated yarns :think

Oh, wow, I didn't realize about the colors! You're right! The background is a picture I took at the beginning of a waterfall that is up the road from me and is a beautiful area with great hiking, birding and floral trails.

 

As for the neat patterns with variegated yarn, sometimes it works out great, other times it doesn't. Just a throw of the dice :lol

Thanks, my inspiration went out the window when the first one I wanted to do didn't work out :( So, fell back on a simple pattern with the yarn I had only used a little out of, and the yarn was my inspiration. It's very "seasonal" looking to me.

such yummy scarves!!!

mine for April- not sure( now that it's done ) that it would be a warm scarf- more of a novelty thing to wear as an accessory perhaps-anyway- it is a panel from an afghan i am going to make - i wanted to practice - and i am soooo proud of myself- after 40+ years crocheting i finally figured out how to change colors without gaps and wavy lines. Who says you can't teach an old dragon new tricks:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

well... here it is:

My friend, Lynne, needed a scarf to match these designer mittens she bought, so I went for it!

I made 2 milestones with this project:

1. I worked with wool for the first time

2. I learned how to do a hdc purl stitch, so the scarf has an obvious front and back side (recommended in the help section here at C'ville by PhotoJenic... :ty)

 

The leaves were inspired by the Irish Lace Scarf CAL (thanks, Happy Bunny!)

...and the roses are from the Mother's Day CAL (thanks, Heart!)

 

overall, I am pleased with how this came out, especially since it was a "create as I go" project! Hopefully, I am keeping up with all you AWESOMELY creative friends :ghug

 

thanks for peeking and have a great day, all!

LeaAnne your scarf is amazing! Great job :clap

 

I forgot to put my picture up :blush So here it is. It's made with Red Heart Collage which does that beautiful banding on its own.
