I made this a while back right after I made my sweater-inspired scarf. The pattern was altered slightly and made into an infinity scarf because I just can’t get enough of those apparently.
The color was called “Pistachio,” which I can kind of understand but at the same time not really. See, if I had my own line of yarn, I would name this color in particular “Springsteen Green” because the color reminds me of spring and as a tribute to Bruce Springsteen, who sang one of my favorite songs of all time: “Hungry Heart.” In fact, I would name all my colors as tributes to bands, singers, and songwriters. “Coldplay Blue” or “Nirvana Yellow” are colors I can visualize and describe to people rather than just “Pistachio” (No, I’m not picking on the person who named this particular yarn color because choosing a name for a color can be a very daunting task). I really have no idea why I’m getting worked up on my yarn colors because I’m practically color-ignorance, as in yellow is yellow and red is red and that there are shades of yellow and shades of red. And together they make orange (Look! I learned something in my elementary school art class!).
Anyway, being a knitter and having all these names as yarn colors will be the death of me because I can’t take these names seriously. I wish I could accept them for what they are, but I’ve never been one to accept things as they are given. It’s a problem really. I’m going to get off the topic of colors and my problems as of now…
I don’t have the pattern written up properly though I want to share it, so think of this as a preview for the present moment. This scarf was actually very simple to make because the pattern is short and repeats, but for some reason, I’m not very good at writing out patterns. That and the fact that I love to procrastinate.
I’m also in the middle of exam week, but after this week blows over, I’ll have a lot of downtime to work on projects! And by that I mean I have a LOT of downtime because I accidentally (lazily) never got around to applying for a real job. So I’m going to be lying around the house knitting and watching cop/mystery/murder shows, or as I like to call it: a well-deserved break. I actually got into cop/mystery/murder shows about a month ago! In high school, I started watching Veronica Mars because all my favorite afterschool programs were canceled or moved to very inconvenient times. Now shows like Rookie Blue, Cold Case, and recently Castle are taking over my life. Anyway, what are your favorite TV shows? I’m aiming to be very obsessed and emotionally-torn this winter break, which is by far my greatest plan to date.
