Ravelry. The story about the pattern says that a knitter by the nickname Karius evented it and published it in a norwegian craft site online. It became a big hit - and the fun thing is that the knitter remains unknown as far as I know.
Anyway, I had to make one of those and I´m very happy about it. I used the yarn Aysen by Araucania. Soft, warm and lovely colors. But it´s bleeding and I have to soak the scarf in vinegar. Not what I expected, but no refund where I bought it and just "That was sad" from them.
Well, I wont let bad service stop me from enjoying the fact that I love the scarf and the triangular shape makes it very versatile.
As I love contrasts there´s a red spark put to it. Makes it more fun to wear. And in the end it´s all about the red color:
Some means the color represents life and vitality. So let´s not get old in our heads - let´s get better in beeing a live just now.
I´ve ordered some labels for my knitting, and this is the first time using them. Gosh, it looks cool, I think.
I´m making more of these scarfs. If you´re interested you can find the very easy pattern here. I knitted in stockinette stitch, the pattern is in garter stitch.

|The body of the jacket. Will be sewn and cut open.|
Yes - it seems like I´m not going to get cold next winter. There´s still some knitting to do - but I love seeing the pattern and the colors grow between my hands.
There´s something magical by knitting in so many bright colors. It´s like creating something so much alive that it´s almost too much. Or, one can never get too much colors, laughter and joy in life. And chocolate of course. LOL!
|Knitting on the first sleeve right now.|
And as I knit along I wonder. All of us are threads in the colorful life on earth.
And it will not get a whole image without each and everyone.
Everyone matters - tell that to someone today.

|The strawberry with the long stem is a bookmark.|
This is an addition to my faux walnuts given to a wonderful friend. Just to add some spark to the gift with some colors and a promise of summer and lazy warm days in the sun.
I´ve read about crafters who put themselves into their work and end up with this: Is it possible to exchange it?
So I´m very lucky to have such a lovely friend who really appreciate what I do.
I hope you are appreciated for your work - for all the hours and love you put in the creative work.
As Voltaire has said:
Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.
