The Story Behind the Picture

I absolutely love this scarf. It's funny how a piece of floaty fabric can evoke so many happy memories. This scarf was part of the outfit mum wore at my wedding. Yes, that bride really is me, although some thirty years have passed since that gorgeous September day. Her dress definitely made a statement and I guess I get my love of bright colours from her.

​If you take a look at my "about" page, you'll see what an inspiration she and my dad had on my life and my love for crafts. When she passed away I kept the scarf and have it tied onto a handle of my wardrobe, so I see it when I wake up. It makes me happy. It just seemed the obvious thing to start my colour inspiration boards with.

Colour Palette

Turquoise / Blue / Green

The colour palette, with hex and RGB codes, has been provided for reference. This has also been matched to the nearest tones in a few of my favourite yarns: Stylecraft Special DK, Paintbox DK, Caron Simply Soft and Red Heart Super Saver.

Please note that the yarn colours shown are an approximation of the true shades. It is impossible to find the specific colour codes for yarn, as it tends to be a subtle mix of colour. The suggested colour palettes, therefore, use the picture for inspiration and are just for fun. They may just give you some ideas on colour combinations, but please go to your local yarn shop and check out the true colours before purchasing. As with all technical things, the colours may vary according to your screen settings.
