FO: Noro Scarf
I know this will sound weird, but I just realized I'm a little nervous about posting my first pic of something I've made. It's silly, I know, but there's something about putting your work out there for many eyes to see that makes me feel anxious. I'll just have another glass of wine and forge ahead!

After all the Christmas knitting, the lace knitting and now (trying) to get the hang of modular knitting, I decided that I needed a break. This was supposed to be my MIL's birthday present, but I liked it so much, I decided to keep it. It's Noro 149, done on 10.5 needles. The pattern is from the ballband of a yarn from Artful yarns. Very simple, quick, and fun. I swear, knitting with Noro makes me turn into a little kid, ooohing and aaahing when the colors change! The color isn't totally accurate, but close.

Is it Noro Kureyon? I've hard that is really scratchy, but your scarf is gorgeous!

Thanks everyone! Jan, it is Noro Kureyon. I wouldn't say it's terribly scratchy, but definately not soft like a merino. Also, blocking helps. I wear this around my neck, and it feels fine.
