… is all that matters here!

I love teal! Two nuno scarves

I love teal – well, I love all colours period.  But each time I make a new scarf using a different colour spectrum, I fall in love all over again!

I was explaining this to my hubby as I showed him the two scarves.  I was almost salivating with delight at the colours and how the two designs had turned out.  He just looked at them, looked up at me over his spectacles and said:

“It must be a girl thing.”

I was so delighted with the shining jadey-turquoisey colours that I totally ignored the potential sexist argument thing, thinking – there must be millions of people, male and female, around the world who would feel the same over two new colourful creations. Some men love colours and creating – some women can’t bear arty farty stuff. 

You can’t generalise, which is what Baz tends to do. So I brought him back to a more personalised perception of the whole thing.

“No.  It’s a me thing.”

But that’s what makes the world go around isn’t it – the differences as well as the similarities!

So, here are pics of the two teal scarves.  I made them on tissue silk, with merino rovings, lots of silk tops and a dimensional yarn.

The zigzag one may remind you of a white one I made recently, with the teal highlights and pattern.  This one is a commission for a jeweller who has a stand at the markets I attend – Glasshouse Market – we have traded our wares with each other: a scarf from me for a bracelet from her.

I love bartering.
