When working on a deadline, one needs a side project. An “I can knit this in the dark while I’m half asleep” project.
My current side project is the Noro Striped Scarf, which I first saw on Jared Flood’s website. I’ve always wanted to knit the scarf, but the Knit Nook was low on Noro until just a couple of weeks ago. Jared used Silk Garden for his scarf, but I chose Kureyon because I fell for one of the colorways (the one with the red, pink, and teal.) I also cast on less stitches — 27 — to get the width I wanted.
So far, a very enjoyable scarf to knit.
