African Sunset Temperature Scarf Update #2

We are rolling into summer break where I live, and before I go on a short vacation I want to share an update on my African Sunset Temperature Scarf with you. I am making this scarf with Scheepjes Merino Soft yarn, and it is actually a knitted project; my first ever knitted temperature project. Under resources you find everything you need, including the written pattern, color chart and video tutorial.


2021, from May to June

On my last update in April, my temperature scarf was just starting to be long enough to be considered a scarf. It was still very in-your-face with bright yellow and orange colors. Below you see the scarf up to the end of April, still very “cold” colors.

I am really happy to see that the vision I had for this scarf is starting to come together. With the warmer weather, dark tones of orange and brown are finding their way into my scarf, and this really balances the bright colors from the beginning of the year.

I am still totally a fab of my Tulip needle point protectors; they keep my work safe so that it does not slipping off the needles. I have them in different sizes and I have them on all of my knitting projects. Don’t tell anyone, but I have 4 knitting WIPs on the go at the moment. If you are looking for these needle point protectors, I have them in several colors in my shop HERE.

The scarf is about 40cm wide, and at the moment about 100cm long. I expect it will double in length from this point to the end of the year, which means it will be a very comfortable scarf. Just the yarn tails are killing on this one!
