First FO of 2008

Noro Striped Scarf

Noro Silk Garden, 4 skeins (color #211, #246 (x2), #205), US 8 needles
Co 33, k1, p1 across, slip first stitch of all rows
Use k1, k2tog bindoff to minimize flare
Five inches wide, nearly 8 feet long (perfect for folding in half and looping through–narrow enough and long enough)

I really enjoyed knitting this scarf—good knitting to do while reading as it’s pretty mindless. Not entirely mindless, however; watching the way the stripes come out is quite entertaining. I’ll probably do another sometime.

    I don’t think mine will ever be finished. *sigh*

    Heather ~ I’m not afraid to admit that I seldom knit for others. Maybe ashamed, but not afraid. ;)

    Yep, it’s for me!

    Yup – that’s one of my favorite patterns too – vicariously, mind you, since I haven’t knit it myself, but I love the blend of colors!

    So, how did the stipes come out like that? I was admiring that last night and very curious about it.
