As a very small child my younger daughter's favourite word was spoon, "spooooon" she would say, again and again and again, grinning gleefully all the while. My younger son would tell you that his favourite word is spanghew, 'to cause a toad or frog to fly through the air', and no I'm not making that up. I've always rather liked inky, both for how it sounds and because I imagine it to be coloured the rich blue-black of a storm at sea*.
I was reminded of that when I tossed these two scarves onto the table together, intending to fold and then photograph them ... do you see the waves? The knitted affair is my oh-so-nearly-ready-to-be-blocked, and appropriately named, Storm Warning, and the other a Noa Noa 'L'ess Drawing' scarf that I won in a giveaway hosted by Vibeke of A Butterfly in my Hair, to whom many, many thanks. Could I somehow wear the two together do you think, because clearly they were made for each other?
I've used a favourite yarn, Bremont Valentina, in my favourite colour, slate grey, so no doubt Storm Warning will be my favourite knit when it's done, until the next one's finished anyway! And talking of the next one, if anyone has any shawl pattern recommendations I'd be happy to hear them. And I'd love to know if you have a favourite word. Do tell!
