Fun with Noro



Pattern: Argosy from Knitty/ Winter 2006 issue - designed by Vyvyan.
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Lite(color 2017) exactly 2 skeins
Needles: US 6 (4mm)
Size: 6" X 68"

I have been known to be quite obsessive about making my Noro yarn symetrical...see this sweater from several years ago ...note that the sleeve stripes are the same width as the body stripes......which meant MUCH spit splicing! Well this scarf turned out perfect with almost no intervention by me. I just started from opposite ends of the balls and fixed a few knots and tah dah.....symetrical scarf! Argosy is an easily memorized pattern that moves along quickly (especially when you want to see what the next color will look like!) and to those that witnessed my conflict....yes - I left in the green.

The Evelyn A. Clark KAL has chosen Swallowtail Shawl (IK Fall 2006 issue) as the next group project. I have some beautiful Peruvian Baby Silk in Aubergine in my stash, so I decided to dive in and go for it. I love starting a new lace project....figuring it all out.... and I think this Baby Silk is the softest yarn I have ever felt slip through my fingers.
