Stripes are my knitting crack

stripes again, you say? why, YES! These stripes are for a dear friend who has been quite keen for a Noro Striped Scarf (ala Jared Flood) for quite a while. And since I am a pro at that particular scarf (I've knit it thrice already) I offered up my services. Let's be honest, any chance to get my hands on some Noro and I am in. All the way in.

these are the beautiful colours she picked out
the starting lines
it's always amazing to me how different Noro looks in the skein, compared to how it knits up. I mean, looking at the first photo, were you expecting an almost night sky colour scheme to be happening at the start of the scarf? Magic!

I really love knitting for other people, I don't really have room in my house for much more knitted stuff, but these hands need to keep busy and keeping other people warm and cosy is as good a reason to knit as any other that I can think of.


  1. You amaze me with your knitting generosity! I love that. I'm so not there yet.

    Love that Noro magic!


    1. you are generous in so many ways Jules! Noro is amazing!!

  2. Love, love, love Noro. Your scarf is gorgeous. You're inspiring me to knit more for others :) Christina

    1. thank you :) it really is fun to knit for others (and they never know about things like using the wrong decrease and wonky seams!)
