Silk Garden Sock Yarn.

Very highly anticipated, and finally here! Silk Garden Sock Yarn. But I was not going to knit socks with it, its too interesting to just be in the shoes. So what to make? A scarf is really like a giant swatch. I have wanted to make a zig-zag scarf, but when I started it, it did not "talk" to me. While I was frogging it, I knew what I will knit! The Child's Rainbow Scarf! I made 2 last year for my cousin's daughters, with Kureyon, but it turned out they are alergic to wool! (who knew?) They gave the scarves to friends, who I think liked them. But I remember how enjoyable knitting it was. And now with the new SGS, in the lovely colrway S84- it will be great. To get the striping I am using two skeins of the same color. I am running back to knit it, to see the surprises the yarn will reveal. Notice how different the yarn photographs in day light and indoor light. Its the same yarn. I love Noro with all the quirky stuff that comes with it. The knots, the straw, the white fluff from the silk. You name it. But the magic of Noro, the colors with the textures- is unique and addictive.

Looks gorgeous -- I'm anxiously waiting for it to make its way to Canada :-(

It's amazing how it looks different in different light. I'm also finding that as I've been using the Silk Garden. You take it outside and, "Hey, where did THAT colour come from?" LOL!

I need to try some out - I'm a Noro lover too, but I've yet to find any leafy bits or straw.

I agree with everything you say about Noro. I also like the straw and bits that come with it, it makes it more "alive". Back to nature I guess :-)

Wow I was looking at your blog to see how you liked the silk garden sock yarn, and I just looked at your flickr favorites- WOW I love your color sense. I knit for color too. I think I'm a color addict but no where near as good as you.
