Rare Event

Yup, a Finished Object, which is a rare event on Sisyphus Knits. I finished one of the two scarves I am working on, a 1x1 rib knit out of three colors of Noro Silk Garden, alternating every 2 rows, inspired by this scarf on Brooklyn Tweed. It's 6 feet long, I think it's awesome, but my husband seems lukewarm on it (he said "it's kinda itchy"); I said, "but it's silk" but you know if a person thinks something is itchy, you can't really argue with them, it's itchy to them. Like the old buddhist saying, "I see red and you see green but we call it yellow." That is all for now grasshopper. P.S. I didn't block it, it's a scarf, but Alyssa, do you think I should block it?

I think it looks very nice. I think the Silk Garden will soften up after a few washes.

It looks so great! I don't really block scarves, but I do give them a good wash and then lay them out to dry. Silk Garden does soften up a bit after washing. Please bring it Thursday so we may ooh and ahh over it. :)

That scarf is a beauty! I'm sure he will like it more after a good washing to soften it up.
