When I discovered the scarf first on Ravelry I finally found out what I could do with my stashed Noro yarn.
I have tried various things with it and never really liked the colors or the feel of the yarn.
Why do I buy yarn just because others says it is soooo good (and often expensive)? Well, I did.
Anyway, back to that story. I´ve knitted with the thin mohair yarn Plumet before and liked it very much. I found two skeins of a discontinued color to match my beast - or one of my Noro skeins and started knitting.
And did I love it - YES! I immediately saw the match. The scarf is light and warm and I think Noro finally found a place somewhere in my heart of yarn.
Used for the right projects it seems to be ok after all. It was a bit strange to knit with such an uneven yarn and the very thin one. But after a while it was ok. It knits up fast after all.
I have already planned another scarf similar to this - after all my Noro has to get out of those boxes to play with some friends. These two completes each other. Just like chocolate and chocolate...
