☺ the pale blog you’ve been looking for ☺
I discovered the Sky Scarf two months before my 18th birthday and completely freaked out. I HAD to knit it. How could I not? It literally took my two passions, meteorology and knitting, and combined them into a beautiful scarf.
So, I bought the yarn in four different colours: blue for bright blue skies, light blue for partly cloudy, white for cloudy, and grey for stormy - and waited. Two years ago, on my 18th birthday, I started my Sky Scarf. I worked on it for exactly one year and casted off on the morning of my 19th birthday. And with exactly 730 rows, It is well over 2 metres long!
I will keep this scarf till the day I die. 18 was a big year for me. After two years of living away from my family on the other side of the country, I was finally coming home. I started university. I rekindled relationships with my friends and boyfriend. This scarf did not leave my side for one whole year - it was with me for the last few days I lived in BC, it travelled with me all across Canada on my journey back home, it went on vacation with me, and it went through all of the ups and downs of that year with me. And, for the rest of my life I’ll be able to remember the weather and skies of that year. I have a visual representation of 2012 - and it is so cool to see how the ends of the scarf (Spring-Summer) are mostly blue, and the middle (Winter) is almost all grey. Being a physical geography student that is the ultimate coolest thing.
For those of you who haven’t heard of the Sky Scarf, it’s an incredible idea for a project where you knit only two rows a day with the colour that mimics the colour of the sky on that day, for one year. DEFINITELY one of the coolest and most memorable projects you will ever make.
