Sometimes I work on this project. It is the Nereides scarf pattern from Jacquelyn Landry and can be had here. This is yarn that I acquired during an auction and it came without any label or identifying notes. Oh, well. Does not bother me as it works quite well for this lovely summer item.
Legend tell us that the Nereides were sea nymphs who dwelled at the bottom of the Aegean Sea. Apparently the nymphs wore shawls while on land and ----well, the story continues from there. You don't want me to give away the ending, do you? I leave it to you to do a bit of research on your own.
This pattern looks superb in sea foam shades so that it mimics waves. Mine is worked in shades of the sand as though it is being hidden from mere mortals lest anything untoward occur. Curious? Well get that research going via your favorite search engine!
Research has begun on another project. "Save the Date" cards for a very eco-conscious event that will occur in 2010. I am scouring websites and chat rooms for projects made from pull tabs. You know, the little silver or blue metal yanking bit that we so easily toss on the sidewalk or into a trash bin. At this point, crochet flowers seems to be winning the idea search. And of course the thread that binds the recycled bits must also fit with the theme. Lots more to consider on this one and time will tell.
