Twisty scarf... finished...

Twisty Knitted Scarf

Twisty scarf: 3 balls of Noro Silk Garden knitted on 5.00mm needles. It was slow to start with but I definitely got quicker... and yes I did buy the extra ball but after trying it on, and seeing the scarf displayed in the shop, I decided against using it - I think that this is a perfect length and if the new recipient doesn't like it then I'll gladly keep it and wear it myself.  *grin*  Of course whilst I was at the wool shop I found another gorgeous sample of this scarf knit in a really fine wool and love it too - and so I came away with 1 ball of that yarn as well (the sample said 1 ball so I figured I'd give it a try). 

My next project is the Baguette... all cut out and ready to sew... I'm just not sure if I'll get this done... (I'm heading out for dinner tonight, and was hoping to have it done before I pick my brother and his girlfriend up from the airport at lunchtime on Saturday)  Wishful thinking....

Very pretty scarf. I have a poncho in that yarn and colourway. Isn't Wondoflex wonderful! (Or should that be wondOful?!) Unfortunately I cannot wear Noro yarn touching my skin (or really any wool these days) so can't make scarves out of it, for myself at least.

What a shame that you can’t wear wool – does that mean you can’t knit with it either? Wondoflex is amazing… I can spend ages just ooohing and aaahing over all of the gorgeous colours and textures!

Oh no I knit with it! It can touch my hands but not my neck or chin or wrists/arms/body, hence the scarf issue. (I don't know why I can knit with it but not the other! This is a relatively recent thing so it may be to do with ageing). And I can wear hand knitted socks made with the usual wool/nylon mixture, though I tend to knit them for my husband and daughter as I have quite a few pairs already. I am apparently a useful canary in the coalmine for knitting friends - if I can touch my neck with a yarn and did does not prickle, anyone can wear it!

That's interesting!! I did find that the other scarf I made with this yarn was a bit scratchy - so I get what you mean...

The scarfe is beautiful Sophie-and the fabric is lovely as well.

Hahaha! Thanks Nikki!! The knitting and crotchet is easy 'cause I can take it anywhere... but I'm looking forward to getting the sewing machine out again today - even if I just make a start on it (don't want to ruin it by rushing!)
