Into The Fray (in situ): a Secret Lentil Scarf Kit
"shhhhhhhhh .... it's Secret Lentil." — Samuel
It's okay, we may speak the name out loud here.
So: Into The Fray. What are people doing with their kits?
It's a kit, but it's more open-ended than prescriptive. I want you to take what I've done and build on it — however your particular soul-and-carcass combination cares to. You can't really do anything wrong. Let's take a look at what other nice people have made.
For her chartreuse and cabbage purple scarf, Melissa laid hers out like this and pinned her patches on so she had a plan from the start. Then she stitched around the edge of this one, and added an X.
Grace added her own twisted thread in fun colors to make a spicy, earthy scarf.
Let's look close up.
Bright contrasting threads, some X's and running stitches, and some tiny dashes that follow the energy pattern in the patch.
I really like the stitch lines that connect the patches.
Ooh, look what fun Scottie had with hers. Nice graphic clusters of stitches, some cross-hatch laddery action, and a fancy asterisk surrounded by pine needles. At least that's what I see.
Cathy's son Samuel is a geologist. She made a geology-themed scarf for him. It's reversible and it has a pocket. Details:
Here are the kits that are available right now:
