FO: Danica

Pattern: Danica by Jesse Loesberg Knitty Winter 2005
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden color 226 3 skeins
Needles: Knitpicks Options US8

I really didn't mean to be away for so long, a had a bad reaction to a tetanus shot and work has been insane. Working from 6:30am to 9:30pm and returning at 7:30am on a Saturday wiped me out. I have the week between Christmas and New Years off and I'm just trying to get there.

Enough of my complaining, on to the knitting. I finished Danica over the Thanksgiving weekend. I am so smitten with this scarf, it may just be my most favorite knit. The pattern was fun and easy to follow once you get the hang of it, and it is so thick and warm. Noro is made for this pattern, the color changes are great and the bright turquoise bits that appear sporadically are really cool.
This is a great way to try entrelac and Noro, I highly recommend it. I did not block it because I like the puffiness of the squares and wanted to wear it. My trips to WEBS was great but I am too embarrassed to show you how much came home with me. It will come out here in small bits over time I'm sure. Well, its late and my one day weekend is over. Hopefully this week will allow more blogging time. I am nearing the end of holiday knitting a bit early and have much to show.

Your Danica looks beautiful. I made one using cheapo yarn, and even that looked good. It's such a fun pattern!
