Diversity Celebration

This is a little illustrated story of how a ball of hand-dyed fiber from Creatively Dyed became a November Air art scarf called Diversity Celebration.

This first photo shows what the prepared fiber looks like just before spinning. It always has a certain airy elegance at this stage, and is very nice to touch.


The next photo shows the yarn in production on the flier of the spinning wheel.

This of course is the finished yarn prior to knitting.

And the finished scarf! The design is a simple, bevel knit style that shows of the wonderful variety of color. This was clearly a case where the fiber & yarn were meant to do the talking! A more active design would have detracted from the harmonious yet diverse palette.

for more photos of this colorful beauty, please check out the Etsy listing.
