FO: Noro Striped Scarf

Pattern: Noro Striped Scarf

Yarn: 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden (color numbers: 84 and 284)

Needles: US 7

Started: November 17, 2008

Finished: December 2, 2008

Comments: Loved making this. Quick, fun and wish I could afford to make another. It's about that time of year to think of others...damn how many days left until Christmas?

The pattern is a basic 1x1 rib and you keep knitting until you don't want to do it any more. If you happen to pick up and touch the Noro Silk Garden and were a little concerned...don't be. The yarn softens up fantastically.

Final dimensions for this was 6 inch wide by 6 feet long. I could totally see this done up skinnier/shorter/longer what ever floats that boat;)

I might have jumped in the Noro Scarf line with everyone else, but I'm glad for it because temperatures in Chicago are unbelievably cold... freeze the nose hairs cold.
