relaxing knitting has already yielded one complete project~~a yummy striped scarf for me!
Pattern: Noro Striped Scarf popularized by Jared Flood
1.90 balls of Noro Silk Garden 201 as the main color stripes~~the dark ones in the photos
1 ball of Noro Silk Garden 84~~the warm color end of the scarf
1 ball of Noro Kuryeon 92~~the cool color end
The latter two colors actually overlap with a pink near the middle
Needle: Size 6 Inox grey
Start Date: December 25, 2007
Finish Date: December 28, 2007
Mods: Followed the pattern as written except I slipped the first stitch of every row purlwise with the yarn in back on the first row and in front on the second. Lather, rinse, repeat ad infinitum.
Size: 6 feet pre-blocking. I plan on washing and blocking this afternoon, since the weather seems to be under the misconception that it is September today.
Thoughts: Love. It.
Edited to add: While the Kuryeon felt much better while knitting, the all-Silk-Garden end of the scarf turned fabulously soft after a soak in Kookabura. Wow.
Mr Fix-it stood in as model for me today. Thanks, honey!
