WIP--Noro Cabled Scarf
I'm working on a cabled scarf....it's in Noro Kureyon, and it's just a simple, thin scarf which I'm hoping will block out a bit wider. It's for a little girl---the daughter of a friend--and when she saw the Noro with the colors changing in it, she asked, "Could you please make me a scarf with THAT yarn??"

I had made her one last year that was a simple pink, in acrylic, and she was very appreciative, but obviously this 9 year-old has more expensive and mature taste than I anticipated!!

Thanks so much--it's so nice of you to say that!! No--it isn't soft--YET--I'm hoping it will be when I steam and block it...if it isn't, I'm going to be so disappointed!! I wonder if there's a softening "agent" to put in cold water to soften wool??

If it doesn't block soft, I'll make her a scarf with some mmMalagrigo I've gotten hid away...the only thing is--she loved these colors so much!
