My expedition to London is rapidly approaching, and I've got it into my head that I simply can not travel overseas without an excess of murky-coloured knits. It's a trousseau of sorts and lately it has been largely populated by neckwear. I intend to spend much of my trip outdoors so this seems appropriate.
This is all that remains of the four skeins of my beloved Noro Retro:
mainly because the rest has been turned into this:It might really be one of the most beautiful things I've ever produced. The patten is Saroyan, a simple, gorgeous and wonderfully versatile free pattern. Combined with the Noro Retro's subtle variations in colour and texture one ends up with something very close to the perfect scarf.
This week's project currently looks more like a nudibranch than a shawlette:and my working name for it is "Miss Anne Elk." Bonus points to the ones who can tell me why.
