Noro Striped Scarf
Completed: August 2007
Pattern: 1x1 rib, as per Jared Flood's tutorial
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden #267 browns/grays (45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb's wool), 1-1/2 x 50g balls (100m each); Noro Silk Garden #84 reds/oranges (45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb's wool), 1-1/2 x 50g balls (100m each)
Notes: This was a great knit. It's so easy to pick up whenever and wherever--watching TV, talking on the phone, waiting at the Starbucks drive-thru. Even though it's 1x1 rib, there is a sense of continual fascination to see how the colors unfold and play against each other, and I didn't really get bored. Oh, and I love that there is minimal finishing required--only a few loose ends to weave in and it looks fine without blocking. I ended up with a 5-1/2" x 72" scarf.
