Having almost reached the end of January (!), I thought it was time to show the progress made thus far on the Sky Scarf.
I'm using six colors to represent:
clear sky - light blue
summer sky - medium blue
overcast - light gray
thunderstorm - charcoal gray
fog - white
clouds - lace-weight variagated white/gray
Most days I use a combination of the the variagated 'cloud' yarn with one of the other colors. The charcoal gray sticks out like a sore thumb...or like a crash of thunder. That darkest stripe you see represents a storm full of lightning and thunder which poured four and a half inches of rain on us.
I decided to do a garter stitch border and the center in stockinette. I'm not crazy about the look of carrying the unused colors up the side, but I may go back at the end and crochet around the whole thing as Lynne suggested.
It's a fun project. It only takes a few minutes to knit each day's two rows (after I untangle the yarn). I'll be showing each month's progress at month's end.
