Arwen and Aurora

Noro Aurora Ribbed Scarf
Noro Aurora Ribbed Scarf

I’ve been working on the Cardigan for Arwen like a fiend these last few days since Christmas, but I did find a little time to make this little gem from three skeins of Noro Aurora, color #5, that I got at the big Black Sheep Knittery sale last May.

This is a simple, ribbed scarf: cast on 30 stitches with size 7 needles and work in a two-by-two rib stitch until you run out of yarn. The finished size is about 4″ wide X 72.” The yarn does the striping for you and the little bits of metallic aqua accents add a lot of interest to what could be a plain Jane kind of scarf. Like the little black dress, ribbed scarves are classics for a reason, y’know.

The Cardigan for Arwen is steaming along and I’ll update you with some photos soon. Here is a link to the KAL. And if I don’t talk to you before then, a happy new year to all of you!

Update 04/20/2011: Sadly, this is the only photo of my Cardigan for Arwen that exists. It’s a “work in progress” photo and doesn’t show a lot of detail. And the fact that it was taken with my prehistoric cell phone doesn’t help. The photo doesn’t do justice to the beautiful Rowan Yorkshire Tweed yarn either.
