I made this scarf this weekend on my knitting machine, for one of the writers at work. It’s super long, like 7′.
It’s a simple 2×2 rib, using 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden Lite, colorway 2030. Simple patterns really bring out the lovely colors of Noro, I think.

So, it turns out I was trapped in my house for 2 weeks. I was supposed to go back to work the week of Christmas but couldn’t even drive on our street. Couldn’t connect to work from home, either. Apparently everyone from work had the same idea and made it impossible to dial in. Darn!
I wish I could say I used the time to finish lots of projects, but, alas, I was a lazy bum and didn’t do much. I did pull out my old Artisan 70D knitting machine and knit this scarf on it:
Pretty, eh? This is based on the Noro Striped Scarf pattern by Jared Flood. It was somewhat difficult to knit on the machine, because the machine likes nice smooth yarns and Noro Kureyon is… not. But it turned out lovely, did it not?
I also managed to get to my stylist, finally. I gave her the scarf.
Then on New Year’s Day, I went down to my local yarn store, Renaissance Yarns, for an amigurumi workshop. Meet Orly!
Oh, and it started snowing again last night. It stuck overnight, but was melting this morning. So I had to go to work. Darn!
