I tend to under-value scarves. I see them as being too simple of a project to be worthy of nice yarn. Pretty dumb, huh? I've now realized that they can be the perfect way to showcase nice yarn. This is the Tulips scarf (I made 3 a few years ago for the neighbor girls) in my recently spun Creatively Dyed Seawool singles. I wanted a lot of texture in the scarf, so I didn't wash the spun yarn, leaving a lot of energy in the singles. I LOVE how it's turning out. It's about 1/4 of the way done and I'll show off the FO in another post (with closeups of the lovely texture).
