And now for something different...

Seems I've been stuck in a sock-and-baby rut lately. Not socks for babies, mind you, but most of my knitting this year has been socks or some type of baby gift. So I'm excited to be launching into something different. It begins with this.

Noro Silk Garden for scarf


Yup, it's yummy Noro Silk Garden. Three delicious colorways that will soon be cast on for this. I even chose the same colorways so I wouldn't have to worry about the colors working well together. Not too original, but (hopefully) a guaranteed winner.

I have no idea yet who will become the owner of this scarf--I don't think it's something my husband would wear, but might suit my brother. On the other hand, I might fall in love with it and decide it's for ME. At this point, I'm just ready to cast on for something new and different!

Enjoy your "something different", Leslie! I hope you like it so much that you keep it for yourself :o)

This is going to be a gorgeous scarf! I knit one for my husband and wanted to keep it for myself SO bad... though I guess it gives me an excuse to buy more silk garden ;)

Hey there! I tried to respond to your question about Tomten but the email address you left on my site bounced back. Not sure how much yarn it took, besides four balls of Skye Tweed, as it was all bits and scraps of Cascade 220. I just say throw together a pile of worsteds you like and start knitting!

But first make that scarf. Gorgeous!
