Noro Striped Scarf...

I'm working on a highly addictive project right now. I mean, can't put it down, knitting instead of eating and sleeping, addictive.

I'm referring to the Noro Striped Scarf made famous by Brooklyn Tweed.

Here is my progress so far ---



I picked up 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden (original weight) from the Three Bags Full Anniversary Sale last weekend (omygod it was a zoo in there, but that's a story for another day).

I cast on first thing Sunday morning, and couldn't put it down. I can't wait to see what color each new stripe will be, and how it will interact with the next stripe from the other ball.

This scarf may be fairly plain, but it is certainly not boring to knit. I also love that the 1x1 rib looks like stockinette, but without the curling.

At this rate, I'll have it all done by next weekend!

That is looking fantastic! I agree that the 1x1 rib is fantastic looking!! Can't wait to see it done!

I want to knit that scarf, because I love love love the color changes. But I hate 1x1 rib so much! Mine always looks awful, unless I twist the knit sts, and then it makes my hands hurt. :( Must think of an alternative.
