When the scarf is dry, the streets are wet.

Noro scarf

Of course the scarf is dry by now. But I was sure glad that this wasn’t a garment that I had been knitting non-stop for weeks, and then having to wait for it to dry, doing nothing for days on end, biting my fingernails and basically driving myself up the wall, before I could start seaming it together.

For most fabrics I can use my high tech steam iron these days but this would have been impossible on this particular scarf.

All in all I thank God for this scarf not being a sweater.

Noro scarf

Quite pretty for something made out of caterpillar excretions and goat hairs

Noro scarf

Soft and warm and colourful

I followed the pattern to the letter except for the final bind-off, where I used P2Tog ,*P2Tog, pass right stitch over left stitch* repeat *…*to end to prevent flaring. Worked like a charm.

Thanks to the ridiculous weather the last couple of days I have been wearing it thankfully.
