Spring Calls for a Bit of Luminosity

Usually Spring in Portland is glorious—or at least mostly glorious. This year, so far, it's mostly wet. And chilly. And as a result, I find myself still thinking about scarves long after I normally would have moved on to cotton tanks and crocheted bikinis (I made one once, a long, long time ago, out of brilliant red cotton; it was adorable, but then I was 20...).

But I have to be practical. It won't be cold and wet forever. Right? Right. So assuming that at some point warm weather will return to my part of the globe, I've decided that if I'm going to knit a scarf now, it's going to be this one.

The pattern calls for bamboo, which I think would be perfect. I love knitting with bamboo—the way it feels, the weight and drape, the glossiness—and I love that it's lightweight and cool, perfect for warmer weather.

Or cool-ish, wet-ish weather. Sigh.

Happy knitting everyone!

Very pretty! It will be perfect for the Rose Parade - because it always rains on Rose Parade day.
