Beauty in Repetition

Arguably the easiest knit I’ve ever done and SO beautiful.  This took me a whole two days to knit since I could not put it down.  I didn’t find one knot in any of the four skeins although there was plenty of vegetable matter throughout.  I suppose that’s the big problem I have with Noro – it costs enough that you’d think it would be a quality yarn with no VM.  I’m tempted to go and spin up something similar and make another scarf like this since it’s SO gorgeous and so easy to do.  The ‘base’ skeins I used were mostly black with some dark blue and green mixed in.. I suppose I could’ve picked better companion skeins or maybe started at different points so that I didn’t get the one really dark patch and the one really light patch, but the beauty of the project is that you never know what’s going to happen with Noro colors.  Also, no two scarves can ever EVER be the same since no two skeins of Noro that I’ve ever seen start and end at the same color.  That makes these Noro striped scarves like snowflakes, right?  😉
