QBug’s SuperPinky DelishCommish! (don’t peek!)

(I’m a bit disappointed that I can’t figure out how to make my pictures not get de-saturated when I upload them to the internet. There is always a really big difference, and I’m not sure how color profiles and all that jazz will help me…!)

Anyway, this was a special commission for a very sweet gal I know in Ohio. She was basically like, “Make me anything!!!” I tried to get her to narrow down her likes/dislikes, and some keywords I gathered were PINK, GLITTER, and LADYBUGS.

I asked Cindy at Studioloo if she could spin me something pink and glittery. I requested a lot of angelina fiber because it’s the only fiber in my tiny amount of fiber knowledge that has a lot of glittery sparkle. Cindy sent me an AMAZING hank of delicious pink sparkletude, and then I got to work!

I’d never worked a moebius style scarf before, and I had a little trouble figuring out how to get it going (it works from the middle outward because you switch back and forth between working on the top and the bottom), but once it worked out, it was a lot of fun!! I alternated the pink yarn with a cream colored wool/acrylic blend. (Note about moebius scarves: the thicker you go, the bigger your twist, the shorter your scarf gets!!!) And I finished the cowl off with a removable brooch/pin that I sewed a little ladybug button to.

I really love the way it turned out. I think it REEKS of girlygirl, which was my goal. Also it is fairly versatile, since you can wear it with or without the flower brooch, or with or without the twist showing.

I am planning how I might want to make something similar for me!

    Omg, Twinkie! I totally adore it!

    I am so in love with the detachable brooch aspect of it. I can’t wait to wear it out. I’m formulating outfits as we speak! ;)

    Thank you so so much. You’re the bees knees!

      OH NO YOU PEEKED!! :P :P :P

      Also if it doesn’t fit or whatever, don’t be shy, just let me know!!!!! I’d never made this style before, as I mentioned, and it started getting smaller and smaller as I made it thicker. I have a pretty big head and can get it over, so I think it’ll be ok!
