Argosy Complete

Hugging one of my latest reads, here's the finished Argosy.

Specs:
Pattern: Argosy
Yarn: two skeins (and a wee bit) of Noro Silk Garden Lite
colour 2011
Time to complete: only days - less than a week!
Noro strikes again with a beautiful colourway. This was a fun pattern, one of those ones that burns itself into your memory so that you don't have to keep reading the pattern.
No new skills learned with this one.
I will say, though, that after my Lady E a normal-sized scarf feels a little, well, lacking.
It's still pretty, and I got to try out the Noro SG Lite. It's a great yarn, even better than Noro SG regular. Of course, not as many colours are available in it yet.

Looks great! I like the colorway. Thanks for the review of Silk Garden Lite - I have been wanting to try it and I am glad to hear you like it even better than regular SG. I'm a fan of the regular SG as well but love DK weight yarns.

I love it! I'm glad you kept the black and grey in. I alos love the length-- you need a long scarf!

It's lovely! I've had to tear mine out and start again, so I'm checking out the FO's to inspire myself to cast back on :)
