Lacy Orange Keyhole Scarf and Colorful Scarfs

I loved the Lacy Keyhole Scarf so much I decided to make another but in a more punchy color, right after finishing my first lacy keyhole scarf, because it was such a quick knit.

I used the Coral (ish) Sheepish yarn by Vickie Howell I have been calling it Orange.  This yarn is more shiny and springy and I like how it drapes. I decided to keep this scarf and give the first keyhole scarf as a gift.



I made a discovery today after blocking the Coral (ish) scarf, I decided to block and shape my previous scarfs too, the Wine Garter Stitch Scarf and the Royal Blue Diagonal Scarf.

With all those colorful scarfs out, I had a WOW moment, I like colorful scarfs, my normal day to day wear has a high percent of black or grey, with a few tops and jackets to give me a pop of color.  Now my scarf collection is included in that pop of color.

I thought of doing a DIY rain barrel but with all the planting I was doing, a bit of help is worth it, so I bought a rain barrel and compost tumbler, got a good deal from my town.



Lots of research online later, I found the perfect downspout rain water collection system by Oatey to channel the water to my barrel. I bought 2 Oatey system so I may make that DIY rain barrel yet :-).



I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
