Inspired by the colours of this beautiful Sandra Juto scarf on flickr, I decided to knit something a little more subdued than the usual, e.g. below. However as I had already made a pact with myself to use only yarn that I have in the house, my palette has ended up nothing like Juto's at all. Funny that. I have also decided that I want to knit a word into this scarf next, but I'm not sure what that might be.
Time to get some expert advice:
Praise the LORD and pass the Ammunition, graph by artist Lisa Anne Auerbach from her Charted Patterns for Sweaters That Talk Back, New York 2008. She advises: "knit your twisted perspective into a sweater. Parade your patent disregard for humanity everywhere you go. Don't be a coward." My lovely sister-in-law discovered this great artist/book a few months after I knitted my First Date Vest. I haven't expressed my twisted perspective much lately, but I am thinking about doing it in the next few rows of the scarf above. I can see the word "bacon" in front of me on a postcard. I like that word. Alot. Given that I have knitted most of this scarf while watching Masterchef, it seems appropriate. And given the theme of the post below, there might be a pattern emerging. A scary one.
