Another reversible cable scarf is taking shape:And a pair of socks in--some of my favorite colors--browns and grays. This is the new Noro sock yarn, and the color nobody else wanted but was my first choice.
As some of you know, I do two socks at a time so that I don't ever come up with the dreaded "second sock syndrome" although one could conceivably get a "two sock syndrome" where neither gets finished! I divide the skein of yarn so that I'm not knitting from both ends but from two skeins. The yarn wanted to knot up as I wound it from the skein, and it looked and felt like string. This concerned me, but once I started knitting, it was pure Noro bliss. The colors are amazingly rich and tweedy and ever-changing and the yarn has that rustic look that I like. I have run into two factory-produced knots so far and, as always, a bit of barnyard vegetation.
