Noro Silk Garden Scarf

On my trip to Alberta by car, last week, I started this scarf. It's knit using Noro Silk Garden in colour ways 211 and 8.

I finished it on the return trip, casting off in Kamloops and sewing in the ends on the Coquihalla highway.
A perfectly chosen project for a long (about 12 hours each way) road trip. It was easy enough to allow me to watch passing scenery, yet colourful enough to make it worth looking down and admiring/petting it once in awhile. And how nice to have a project last the whole trip and yet be completed just before I arrived home.

At 5 and a half inches wide and 5 feet, 6 inches long , I used most of the 4 balls of Noro Silk Garden (2 balls of each colour way).

It's very very pretty. Is it ribbed? I love the Noro colors. They're so amazing.

Yes Carrie, it's 1x1 ribbing with 2 rows of each colour, alternating. On the second row of each colour you slip both the first and last stitch. The pattern is on the "Brooklyn Tweed" blog.


That's gorgeous!! I'm sure it will brighten your days in grey winters. Gee I hope when I grow up I can knit as well as you. ;oD
