I caved

I caved.

The urge to visit my LYS coincided with my payday. I've never bought Noro Silk Garden before (or, for that matter, any Noro.)

But, these skeins were 40% off and I couldn't resist.

Two skeins each of 2 different dyelots. Can you guess what I'm going to make?

It looks like this:

And the pattern, or recipe, can be found here. Jared Flood's striped scarf is probably the first thing to hit my Ravelry queue, and now it's finally made it onto my needles.

It was a long time coming.

I LOVE that scarf!!! Never made it because I'm not a big fan of the yarn, but I love the finished product!!

You've given me hope for this scarf -- I bought two batches of yarn for this. I have a controlling yarn needs to "match" issue and just couldn't make the colors work. I was getting ready to sell the whole mess half off on ebay. I just reached down and grabbed four random balls and, Lo!, they just might work together. The three of the other four might work too.
