Spring Surf Scarf

I have a love-hate relationship with Noro yarns. Love: the colors!! The long repeats of beautifully intense shades are to die for. Hate: the knots! I have been disappointed several times with knots tied in the middle of the skein connecting non-sequential colors. Boo!

This time, however, I was delighted to get a whole skein with ZERO knots!! Yipppeee! It's Silk Garden Sock Yarn in colorway #S87. It reminds me of a spring flower garden.

The Morning Surf Scarf design was simple to knit and shows off the yarn perfectly. I used a 36-stitch cast-on, and repeated the 12-row pattern until I ran out of yarn. After rinsing and blocking, the resulting scarf is approximately 8"X60". Total love!
