A Perfect Friendship Color Story

April 9 Color Story

COLOR STORY OF THE WEEK: A Perfect Friendship
  It's no secret, blue is my favorite color.
I drive a blue car.  I cruise on a blue bicycle.  I ride a blue Vespa.  I wear blue clothes.
My friend Heidi on the other hand is a yellow girl.
She recently bought a yellow coat which inspired me to make her a little spring present...
a yellow and blue scarf to which I made a matching one for myself.
That's how this week's Friendship Scarf came to be...
making a goodie for a friend and combining our two favorite colors.
The idea of making a scarf in the Spring may seem a little nutty if you're a knitter,
but this color combination of blue, yellow, and green says Spring to me!
The fabrics are just yummy!  Wallflowers is light
and the Pick a Bunch is organic cotton, so it feels delicious too!
She'll receive her scarf this week (she lives in Denver),
and when I wore mine to the cafe last Friday, I was told I looked "very sunny!"
