Melody's Scarf Goes to Seattle

This lucky pig at Seattle's Pike Place Market got to pose with my "Eternity Scarf" that I special-ordered recently from Melody Johnson, of art quilt fame. Here's a link to her blog, where you can drool over some of her other knitted items:  I picked my favorite shade of green and she whipped it out in no time. We art quilters love anything having to do with color and fiber, which includes yarn.

The cool thing about this scarf is that it can be worn lots of different ways. In the picture above, I doubled it around my neck for warmth while having my iced mocha at Starbucks and showing off the fun little bags made by another quilter friend, Nancy.

It can be looped around the neck AND the head, a feature that came in handy on the ferry to Seattle when the wind picked up. It can also be worn like a necklace in one long, dramatic loop. (I didn't get a picture, but that was the option of choice for indoors in Seattle.)
And here it is with another lucky pig inside Pikes Place Market.

Have a colorful day!
