A Fire Breathing Unicorn

Fire breathing unicorn 
I started something new.  It's been ages since I knit an actual scarf (versus a wrap or shawl), but as soon as I saw the Optical Delusion: Conflagration pattern, I knew I had to make it.  The pattern is recommended for varigated or multicolored yarns with short lengths of color (three to five inches).  I know it's meant to represent flames and I could see it as leaves knit in greens, but I decided to try something else.  I had a skein of Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Sunken Treasure so I thought I'd see how it worked.  Obviously, it's not conventional flames, but I realized as I watched the yellow, pink, and turquoise dance with the dark gray, I was knitting a fire breathing unicorn.

I'm still giggling about it.
