Noro, Noro and More Noro

I have been in a Noro mood lately. I have been working on the Noro Stripped Scarf. I'm making it for the DF, not sure if he's going to wear it or not. It has a very little bit of purple in it but he is not a purple kind of guy.

If he doesn't want it I'll keep it for myself. Purple is one of my favorite colors. I am really happy with the way that the colors are coming out. I am using four skeins of Silk Garden, two in color 47 (grey, black and browns) and two in color 246 (green, purple, blue and gold). I like the combination of the two colorways.

My second Noro project is the Nella Cropped Cardigan. I am making a couple of modifications to my sweater. First, I'm using Silk Garden (color 243) instead of Kureyon. Second, the pattern is currently available for a size medium and I'm a small so I went down two needle sizes and am increasing the raglan increases so the sleeves fit. When I'm done I will post all the modifications I made. I'm really pleased with the way this is coming out. Of course I love the purple in the Silk Garden.

This is not the best picture because I'm at the point where I picked up stitches around the entire garment so it just looks like a crumpled ball of Noro. I also ordered some Noro sock yarn from Little Knits. I can't wait to get it.
