What is it about a golden yellow wall?
It draws the eye and somehow makes everything brighter, happier, clearer...don't you think? And what a great backdrop on a sunny day.
We so enjoyed walking the streets of PC and feeling the sun on our faces. Heading for the mountain wonder is the only way to survive this 'land without sun'. The only purchase was chocolate, (oh, yeah!) but we spent the day wandering just to stay in the sun. It made coming back down easier as you KNOW there is clear blue sky above the fog. ('They' promise it will leave very soon!)
Clapotis is long and lean and loves spreading her wings. The way she can be wrapped like a stole makes her perfect for an added layer of warmth beneath, or on top of, a winter jacket. (It was 28 degrees in the valley and 40+ in PC.) The ripples created by the dropped stitches hang perfectly around the shoulders creating a lovely effect.
And the way the bias knit rolls easily into a tube so you can wrap her up tight around your neck is so cozy. She is a nicely warm, elegant and versatile friend. Kate’s creation is one of my favorite scarves and I'll surely make another.
