Heather Dixon of Army of Knitters
share the story behind her Tongore Scarf..."The
I dreamed of a scarf that was long enough to wrap
around my neck three times, without strangling me. It had to be warm, it had to
be wide, it had to be a golden mustard color and worked in a simple but
textured stitch and most of all, it had to be adorned with the wonderful
fastener I had found at White Barn Sheep & Wool. By knitting the Tongore Scarf,
I made my dream come true!"
Please note: One of the skeins of yarn I used was a different
dye lot from the other two. This gave my scarf an interesting, more textured
look which was not intentional but I rather like it.
