As soon as I saw the second Argosy version in December's Knitty , I hurried to my LYS to purchase some Noro Silk Garden Light. I bought 2 skeins to make a scarf for my daughter for Christmas and 2 for myself. Hers is a similar colorway to mine, but instead of the coral-ish color, hers has fuschia. My scarf is show to the right. I think it's color 125.
I went back to the store for more but there was only one skein left, which I figured would be enough for a cap.
I had wonderful plans to create a hat that would be similar in appearance to the scarf, but since I was in a hurry to finish before I leave tomorrow for CA and since I had only one skein, I opted for a pattern I found online that would show off the beautiful striping. It's Nancy Delcomyn's Silk Garden Spiral, and I was pleased with the results. I made slight adjustments because I used the lighter weight yarn. By the way, this was my first time using a Noro yarn, although I've admired how it looks made up by others.
