The theme for the first day of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is color, which worked out perfectly because I am in the midst of knitting this very colorful ruffle scarf. (Disclaimer: The color has been enhanced a bit with PicMonkey, an awesome free photo editing tool.)
In my every day life, I tend to shy away from color. I am a quiet person who doesn't like a lot of attention, and my closet is dominated by greys and blacks that make me feel safely invisible at work and play. But when I knit, I often go with variegated yarn in shades ranging from ocean blue to hot pink and revel in the unfolding of color as my project grows. The idea of knitting in grey and black is unappealing.
This orange scarf is an anomaly. I don't think I've ever knit or worn this color. I bought the yarn because I was oddly drawn to a photo on Ravelry of a lace shawl that was knit with it. The color is called "Flame," and I think it will be perfect on days when being safely invisible is just unacceptable.
