The Sky

January 1

January 7 January 11 January 10

Pinterest is telling me that over a year ago I pinned the idea of the Sky Scarf.

The idea is to knit one row on the scarf each day in the corresponding color of the sky. I love the idea! But I wasn't sure if I wanted a scarf so I never started it. I had been trying to think of a photo project to do for 2013. Last year I posted my "This Moment" posts each Friday. Now I want to turn those into a photo book. But I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue it through this year. I wanted something different.

I decided on January 1st to take a picture each morning of the sky as I open the living room curtains. As you can see, I can't decide which window I want to use! But I have kept it up so far for 11 days! (Well if you don't count the 1 day I forgot!)

I haven't started knitting anything yet as I'm still not sure I want to knit a scarf. I'm thinking of knitting up squares in each color and making a blanket. There is a flickr pool of people who have done many different things with this idea. I figure I'll get the pictures taken so I can look back. Maybe my 2014 project will be knitting it all up!


  1. Ooh, what a great idea. I've started a beekeeper's quilt with random scraps that is my long-term 2013 project but now you've got me thinking that maybe I should consider knitting my hexipuffs in shades of the sky. Oh oh, wheels are turning in my head!

  2. Well aren't we thinking the same way today?? Lovely skies and I hope your blanket idea comes to fruition!

  3. Your sky scarf will be beautiful! I have also been cutting back on my social media time this year, specifically facebook, which I am about totally fed up with. I am so done with the mean-spirited, rude, absurb comments people make. I do still enjoy reading and commenting on positive, uplifting, interesting blogs like yours. Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. Taking a picture of the sky each day is a good idea.
    I don't take a picture of the sky every day but most days I do during my morning walk. I get to see the sun come up every morning. : )
