5KCBWDAY2 – A Dating Profile

The challenge for Day 2 is to:

“Write a dating profile for one of your finished projects.”

 

I’m known as Colour Craving and my design is a creation of Stephen West.

I first arrived on the needles in September 2013 as part of a Stephen West Mystery Shawl Knit Along on Ravelry and I fully fledged in December 2013.  In between saw me go to Shetland Wool Week where I grew quite a bit, especially while waiting at Sumburgh Airport.

I am made of Artesano 4ply Alpaca in three colourways.  I am super soft which complements my versatility, flexibility and I also have great warmth.

I seem to attract a lot of attention wherever I go.  People are intrigued by my colours, structure and overall design.  I love the fact I can mould my form into a number of different ways and still fool people as to my real shape.

Me in disguise:

The real me showing off my shape:

Folded over in the middle as I’m so long. You can see my shape starts wide, then tapers down and I have this beautiful ladder feature up the centre.

I can be wrapped around the neck, made into a head scarf or draped over the shoulder.

I am looking for a Colour Craving pal.  I know there are lots of you out there.  Pop into the site and say hello!

    I expect you will need two of these for winters on Skye!

      At least! It’s a great project to knit so I’m sure I’ll do another one at some stage.
