In my head, all the months of the year have colours. January is black, May is asparagus green, November is chocolate brown, August is tropical orange, and April is turquoise.

This is a simple scarf made from hand painted bamboo that I designed for my mum for Mothers’ Day. It’s been a really cold spring and she needs a little something to keep her warm when she’s out walking, but it’s too depressing to wear winter scarves this close to “summer”.

Mum loves turquoise, and I thought of her immediately when I saw this yarn. It’s meant for weaving, and not ironically, the scarf is worked in a simple knit/purl pattern that looks like those woven paper projects you make in elementary school.
