2 Sunshine Scarf

02-diy-no-knit-scarf

Sunshine Scarf: I feel a little guilty divulging this information, as if I’m betraying the whole rest of the spectrum, but I have to admit that I have a favorite color… yellow. And not just any yellow, not baby yellow or lemon yellow or mustard yellow, but deep and bright and clear sunshine yellow, the kind of yellow that emits its own light and whistles its own carefree tune. When it comes to this kind of yellow, Alchemy is the master, hands down. Alchemy’s yellows are saturated and fresh, like pollen-soaked blossoms. Using them to make a scarf in August feels like the perfect way to bring the heat of summer into the upcoming crisp nights of autumn. While Madeline Tosh’s beautiful Tosh Merino Light serves as the soft, neutral ground, Alchemy’s Kozmos provides the entertainment, not only with its splash of intense color, but also with its play of texture: a little fuzzy, a bit shiny, and a lot gorgeous!

Pom Pom Infinity Scarf: This summer on the streets of Soho I noticed that last winter’s big cowl trend wasn’t going away, even in the hottest weather. Instead of the bulky knits of winter, these summer versions were sewn in lightweight silk, cotton, and linen fabrics and were worn like flowing necklaces over tank tops and sun dresses. I am someone who hates to be hot, so even though I admired these pretty summer scarves, I couldn’t imagine putting something extra around my neck in the sticky heat. But since the weather has started to cool down, I’ve been yearning for an oversized sewn cowl of my own! (via Purl Soho)
