The Comforts of Noro...

I just adore knitting Noro striped scarfs.  They're tremendously comforting, the saturated colors are truly gorgeous and the constant surprise of how they will match up makes every new row an ongoing feast for the eyes.  How's that for gushing?  I can't help it.

If I had to knit the same project over and over for the rest of my life -- this would be it.  This little beauty goes to Gracie and yes, she has been exhorted not to leave it around for our ferocious little kittens (who both seem to have it in for fiber projects of all shapes and sizes) to find and abuse as their new play toy.


  1. I too love the Noro scarf, but I don't think I have ever seen that colorway; it is just gorgeous! Very nice for Fall.

  2. Thank you Pamela -- I love the greens and yellows in these colorways! I was a little surprised when the electric pink came along (had been buried somewhere in the skein), but that's the beauty of Noro. You can see the pink sort of near the fold in this photo. Still, it adds a bit of whimsy that I love.
