Have you every heard of Conceptual Knitting? I didn't until last year and when January 1st came I was ready. I assembled a collection of different blues, grays, and white yarns which represented the colors of the sky and began my Sky Scarf. What's that? It's a scarf that documents the weather. I cast on 40 stitches and each day I knit a row in a color that matches the sky. Some people look at the sky at the same time every day, but that doesn't work for me. Whenever it is that I remember to look is the color I pick. Some days it's been foggy in the mornings and clear blue in the afternoons. Other days it's been cloudy and then raining. There's a fair amount of gray but also a lot of blue which reminds me that Oregon's weather isn't always cloudy and rainy. It's a fun project.
