This is another "not" Noro Striped Scarf a la Jared Flood's formula.
Now check out this knit pictured below! There isn't anything I don't love about it: the shawl collar is flattering on everyone, the colour - well, y'all know I'm nuts about gray. The detail and shape of this garment is retro and yet cutting edge for today's knits. I. Must. Knit. This!! I can see myself trucking around town all stylish with a smile on wearing this cardigan. And maybe my new boots.

I can't stop thinking about this pattern. Thea Coleman and Sarah Dimond have collaborated to release "Dark and Stormy". If you're not on Rav click here for Thea's blog post. I didn't get the yarn Sarah's selling to kit it (not that I didn't try!), and when I tried to sub Madeleinetosh worsted there wasn't anything in darks that I liked. My weakness? Lisa Souza in mahogany.
Hoping to have this striped scarf completed before the weekend is out and positively itching to cast on for Dark and Stormy! The pattern is available separate from the kit from Thea is you (like me) weren't able to get it all from Sarah.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful fall weekend!
edited to add: Ha, ha, very funny - you know who you are!! I will not "only" have on this cardigan, a smile and my boots -- there'll be pants too... sheesh! lol Renee
