The Noro scarf for my sister is finished. And it is beautiful. I know that several of my posts here were a little frustrated, but it was more with my learning curve, and much less with the scarf itself. I've learned a lot:
- How to create a neat, finished, slip stitch selvedge
- How to finish the edge of a 1x1 rib so it doesn't look wavy
- How to get around Noro's occasional sudden color change by knot
- When to tell that the color play really needs to be pulled out and fixed. Clearly, the more contrast, the better the scarf.
I love the colors, I love the look, I love the warmth, and I love the nom. I hope my sister loves it too. I'm really glad she trusted me to knit her $$$
After Ravelympics, of course. Let's not get carried away here.
Thanks to @iAudrey for getting out her amazing magical camera and making this scarf gorgeous in the pics. You can see more of her pictures in my Noro Nom Flickr set. I can't wait for my sister to get it!
