Bex's scarf was designed for Seattle's milder climates. Here on the eastern side of the state, we get higher highs, and lower lows. So I did adjust the temperature/color ranges for that.
My color/temperature ranges were:
- below 35 (degrees Fahrenheit): Gumshoe (darkest gray)
- 36-43, Jack of all Trades (another gray)
- 44-51 Magnet & Steel (yet another)
- 52-60 Dove Cote (lovely bluey gray and my favorite color on the scarf)
- 61-69 Thank You Note (turquoise)
- 70-77 Silver lining (the almost white)
- 78-85 Registry (silvery gray)
- 86-94 Bubbly (pink)
- 95 and above Bellini (orange)
The Plucky Knitter. In hindsight, I maybe should have realized the grays would be too alike, but they still look more different in these pictures than in my scarf. I ordered these two gradient groupings of their Primo Sport yarn - a blend of 75% (fine Italian superwash) merino wool, 20% cashmere, and 5% nylon. It's lovely stuff, and I've enjoyed wearing it around my neck.
Plucky yarn is quite an experience. If you want it, you really need to be on their mailing list, and then when they announce that yarn will be available, set an alarm to go online to order yarn. It's almost a cult-ish feel, but between great yarn bases and amazing colors, I can see why it's such popular stuff.
This was a fun project - often I knit just one row in for the previous day's temperature before going on to work on anther project. It made me pay closer attention to my area's weather.
It would be a good "souvenir" to make of a special year or for a special place.
I have quite a lot of each of these yarns left. What else can I make with them?
