Beauty And The Beast

This is the story about the fragile, sensible, delicate and the bulky, noisy and space taking. Welcome to the scarf with a story of a free german pattern the everlasting stash yarn and the thin mohair thread.

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...

  1. Tihi, hvis du vidste hvor mange gange, jeg har stået og set på det garn, og tænkt at det da var lækkert og hyped nok, til at man burde købe lidt. Nu springer jeg over. Men sikke et lækkert tørklæde det blev til:-)

    1. Tak Dorte - det gjorde jeg også indtil jeg købte noget af det... Men det var ikke så slemt da jeg begyndte at strikke med det. Men meget ujevnt!
