two skeins of Noro Transitions in colorway 7, one ball of Supersocke in color 765, and a set of size 2 double points. I ordered the Noro to finish a scarf I began making. I saw someone knitting a scarf with this yarn and loved the angora part of the yarn. Little did I know that I could have just worked with Noro Kocheran if I loved the angora so much. Here's the scarf, on a stitch holder, waiting for me to finish it:
I'm just not sure now how badly I want this scarf. So far, it's taken one skein, and I wonder if I should just frog it and use the three skeins for another project. I mean, this isn't by any means a cheap yarn and I somehow feel that I wouldn't wear this scarf very much. If anyone can recommend a good pattern for this yarn, I'd appreciate it.
I'm hoping to make a pair of ribbed-top socks with the Supersocke. I'm not expecting that I'll be able to knit up beautiful socks with this yarn. Even experienced sock-knitters have trouble making this yarn (which is both self-striping and self-patterning) look like this. But it seems to much fun just to try.
