It's knitting weather!

I love the coloration of this Noro yarn. It is the perfect yarn to knit this scarf with the diagonal design which changes to form opposing triangles.
I got the Agate scarf pin at International Quilt Festival in Houston. If you didn't see me there it is because I probably got this at least 10 years ago. This is my first chance to use it.

This long skinny scarf is also knit diagonally but in only one direction. I had it about 80% done and put it away. When I took it out there was no pattern to follow. It is so simple I was able to figure out what I had been doing.
If I just throw it around the back of my neck it is long enough to reach my knees.
It is so soft and warm.

Here's another way I can wear this scarf. I had no one to model it so I hope you get the idea. (If I waited until tomorrow I'll have someone here but I don't think any of the men that are putting in the new furnace would be comfortable modeling it!

This is how I am wearing the scarf right now. I can also do a lot of other things with this scarf and can use the scarf pin with it too.

I would love to be a fly on the wall if you dared to ask the available but probably not willing models! Though I could probably get the idea if I ask the man about my house.

I do wish I didn't tense up every time I knit. I guess I should do it more often but if I drop a stitch, I am hopelessly lost and can't carry on. I do love your scarves. The first one looks like it would be fun to do.

talk about serendipity or synchronicity! Jan Myers-Newbury was just telling me about this scarf pattern the other day because we are both Noro fans, but she didn't know the name of the pattern. Can you tell me what the name is? I would love to have it.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!
