Noro Silk Garden Striped Scarf

Our long weekend concludes today and we are going to make the most of it. So far our only plan is to go out to breakfast but I’m sure we’ll find fun things to do afterwards – even if it’s just loafing off at home.

In the meantime, I’ve finished the Noro Silk Garden Striped Scarf. Say that 10 times fast, will you? And even if you get tongue tied it will still be faster than knitting one of these scarves! Don’t get me wrong – I loved it – but boy was I ready to be done with it last week.

And I am. Done, that is. I even have proof.







Honestly, the colors are so beautiful and the combinations all so different that I couldn’t stop taking photos. Either that or I was just so happy to be outside in the sunshine that I lost track of time.

Suffice to say, it’s gorgeous. I wasn’t sure who would be the recipient but Dale and I both really love it so I think we will be sharing the wearing of this scarf.

    I can’t get enough of these. I’m working on another one, too.

    Oh, it is so pretty…I have two skeins of that Noro Garden Silk…two different skeins! The reason being that I bought one for myself and one for Scarlett when we were at this interesting little knit shop in Portland. So, it looks like I will be the proud owner of two scarves!!!

    I love it. And it is on my to do list, pretty near the top, so this is good inspiration.

    I haven’t seen (or knit) a single one of these that I didn’t absolutely LOVE. Nice job, Carole. And it’s good to share.

    I haven’t gotten around to making one, they are so beautiful. The color changes make it an interesting piece to look at, but oh my… I can see the “endless” part. Maybe I’ll put up a bag with yarn and needles for a time when I need endless, mindless.

    So pretty! I made one for my brother for Christmas but I may need one for myself as well. Maybe next fall…

    Gorgeous! That’s a great color combo.

    Joint scarf custody…what a great idea! Wouldn’t work here, though. It’s beautiful, Carole!

    You can’t make a bad color combination, but yours is exceptionally nice.

    Beautiful colors!

    That is a particularly harmonious scarf, I agree! And I am impressed that you would even consider letting Dale walk off with it. You’re very generous! ;-)

    Beautiful! You mean you are not going to make Dale one of his very own? (ducking)

  23. Cookie Said,

    Carole, it’s lovely. Bit of a slog, though? I knew there was a reason I’d been avoiding it.

    I’m so glad you and Dale are getting a long lazy weekend together. Enjoy!

    It is beautiful, and I can definitely see why you’d want to be done. Congrats!

    A scarf you can share – too sweet! and a lovely one it is :)

    Enjoy your last day off.

    Noro is such a magical yarn, but its true beauty can only be brought out by a beautiful knitter such as yourself.

    Now I know where our sunshine went. You can keep it though. I want to be able to wear my handknits at least for a few days.

    Not making another one, eh? No chance?

    I might. It’s good reading knitting.

    I am overcome with longing every time I see one of those Noro scarves. Yours is lovely!

    I love, love, love your scarf. I have stashed some Silk Garden for just this purpose, and it’s going to be the very next thing on the needles.

    The scarf is gorgeous. I saw one at a LYS when I was visiting somewhere last fall, and I couldn’t take my eyes off it. I agree though… scarves are boring. I’ve made three this season, and just about go nuts by the time I get to the end!

  33. Beth Said,

      February 19, 2008 @ 9:51 pm

    It’s beautiful! I’d like to knit one of these someday…if the Chevron Scarf doesn’t do me in. :)

    Oh! THERE are the pictures! I think my poor computer doesn’t much like your new blog format. :(

    I can’t view the pics anymore, so I had to borrow hubby’s laptop, just to see this scarf! (And all the other pics I’ve been missing! lol)

    Anyhoosie, it’s just beautiful, as always!

  35. Karen Said,

      February 20, 2008 @ 8:32 am

    Pretty! I haven’t seen one I haven’t loved yet. I am pretty sick of working on mine too.

    I just adore the simplicity of these scarves – beautiful gradations. Lovely work~
