“Windows on a Winter Walk” Collar

A while ago I carded and spun yarn to evoke the glowing warmth of light shining from windows — as seen from the outside looking in — on a winter’s walk. I carded bits of sparkling silk fibers and fabrics, including sari silk remnants, along with deep blue and purple merino, and spun a single-ply, “thick and thin” yarn.  Here are some images of the collar I crocheted with that yarn, showing different ways to wear the collar, using each side of the double-sided button closure that I made from two, large vintage buttons, one side shiny dark blue and the other a creamy shade of ivory.  The bright yellow fringes are Lori Flood’s exquisite hand-dyed silk.
