Why I let someone knit me a scarf with hardly any say in how it would look: Correction--BEGGED--because KJ can knit no wrong!!
My Inspiration for Holly: This was an easy one- I thought "Holly", looked in my yarn pile and pulled out the four yarns I wanted to use. After I planned it all out, I sent her a message to double check if she had any no-no colors. She responded saying basically, she likes earthy, dark wines, and things that work with her hazelishness. Fortunately- that's what I thought as well. On a daily basis, Holly evokes something between gold lame', puffy paint shirts, stirrup leggings, cashmere, cowgirl boots and lyric poetry- but in a good way... Hence, this scarf is a tribute to her sexy, self-effacing style of life, clothing and persona. She's a gem- that you find in the bottom of a cereal box and then put in a frame covered with seashells that your grandma gave you and love forvever and ever- all that and Hip Hop too!
