Fiber Friday - Silk Garden


I've realized that at least one portion of my stash could serve as a Noro salesman's sample case. I have amassed what seems like a crap load (translate = a lot) of Noro yarns Can you tell that when I started knitting and realized there were so many beautiful color combinations of Noro - I got a little excited and went a little overboard.

This is Silk Garden I have stashed away for a couple different projects. The nice red color has been put aside to knit Tilt from knitty.com. This is the third sweater I'd like to finish this winter. I'm not sure that I'll really get it done in time to wear it before spring, but you never know.

The other color is set aside to knit Halfobi by Ivete Tecedor. It's not really a sweater, more of a shrug. I think that this pattern will be much simpler than the other, but I love the colors just as much.

I'm really liking both colors together and have decided any and all leftovers from these two projects will be combined in a scarf. After putting these skeins together for photos; I've decided that I really like the combination.

Mmm...Silk Garden. That pink one is the same color I used for my vest. Absolutely love it. I think it'll make a wonderful companion to the other.
