I've been making regular visits to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden this March to check on spring's progress. The month started slowly with the first spindly yellow wisps of witch hazel and gained momentum, finally delivering the bursting buds of the dogwoods. I made this Springtime Bandana to celebrate these early spring efforts. It reflects the very tip of a daffodil bulb pushing up out of the earth and the millions of tiny bright green dots twinkling off of every twig of every tree.
Alchemy's Haiku mohair and silk blend is an amazing yarn for capturing nature's beauty. Its rich hand dyed colors are reflected by the silk and softened by the mohair. To add to the complexity of color, I striped a soothing seagreen with a bright acid green. The result is a like a beautiful watercolor of spring's essence. Enjoy! --Whitney
