I finished the Lakeview Scarf
weeks ago but never had the chance to photograph it until this weekend.
Although I got my inspiration from the cyanometer, I realized that this scarf
is actually a chromometer, comparing all colors not just blues. So I subtitled
It turned out much better
than I was hoping, very striking. Even though I used all scraps from my stash for
the colors with different weights, materials, and gauges, I like the different
textures it gives.
My sister said she was going
to make one with the main color in seed stitch instead of garter. I think it
might look better, so when she finishes, I will post those pictures as well.
I made a pattern and put it
on Ravelry so if anyone wants to make one, it’s there. I would love to see
pictures if you do.
Great Salt Lake is a diverse ecosystem. From
wetlands to salt marshes, the lake has more variety than you might initially
think. This diversity is expressed in the lake’s color. Not just blue, the lake
displays a myriad of hues. From bright red in the north arm to deep green in
the marshes, Great Salt Lake cannot be described with just one color. The
Lakeview Scarf displays all the colors of the water that I have observed going
out to Great Salt Lake over several years. It is meant to allow the wearer to
gauge the current color of the lake through the windows knit into the scarf to
compare it to my observations.
