This is mostly a knitting blog. Sometimes pictures of things I've made, sometimes not. I'm a guy who knits, I usually attend a men's stitch 'n' bitch on Monday nights, and I prefer natural fibres to artificial ones. I have a love-hate relationship with bamboo yarns: I love what they can do and how they look, I hate how they are made. I've been knitting since about 2003, though I really didn't get into it until 2005, while convelescing with a broken leg. I must have discovered something good, 'cause I'm still knitting years later.

Noro Scarf II

Even though it is not my favourite yarn, I'm making another Noro scarf. This one in manly shades of blue. Which happens to be my favourite colour. However, while I thought I'd make this for myself, I'm now more inclined to think about giving it away. I started the second set of skeins last night. The first skein of colour A was a lot shorter than colour B. Now I'm on the second skein of colour A, and have started the skein of colour C. I'll keep the remainder of colour B for another time.

Like all Noro skeins, both of these have knots in them somewhere. It's something a knitter just can't escape: If it's Noro, it's knotted. In colour C we go from a grey-pink to a black-blue. I think I wouldn't mind as much if they could just match the colours.

Here's a picture of the scarf as it is now.

Noro Scarf, knitted on US 6 needles.
The pattern is by brookly tweed.
