My Weekend Project



Knit my one skein of Noro Silk Garden (45% Silk, 45% Mohair, 10% Lamb's Wool) into the popular Feather and Fan Scarf/Shawl pattern. I just kept going until I ran out of yarn. Here it is drying on my mini ironing board. It is head scarf/neckerchief size.

I do love the colour of the yarn - much more vibrant than in the photo - and it works beautifully with this pattern. I am not however, as in love with the yarn as I thought I'd be. It was very twisty when being worked and feels stiff. Hopefully, after blocking and use, it will soften up.

Gorgeous!

And I have heard that Noro Silk Garden can be successfully softened by using hair conditioner - rub in, soak, rinse gently.
