my little mermaid

in the spirit of spring and transformations, here is some makeover madness chickadee style:

before:



after:



the magical transformation was made when the treads of tilli tomas voile de la mer met up with the curve of this chickadee's crochet hook. the february installment from stitch dc's stash club, voile de la mer is composed of 70% silk and 30% seacell, a natural kelp fiber. the blue-green version of the variegated sea silk is called mermaid. a fitting nautical name with a nod to its kelp component. the pattern design, provided by the people at stitch dc, allows the fiber to float along in wonderful little waves. smooth sailing .

What a lovely scarf -- I am a Stash Club member too and have ripped this project three times already... Seeing your FO gives me the courage to try again.
