Posing with Noro--a Scarf

I jumped on the Noro bandwagon to make this scarf for my son. Knitting a scarf can be tedious but the changing colors of the Noro Kureyon kept my interest the whole way. Love that stuff. I cast on 30 stitches for this one and it took a little over 1 skein of each colorway. Notes are on Ravelry.

When Nils opened the package he put the scarf around his neck and spontaneously struck some "model poses"--all in jest, of course. We were all laughing so hard but he kept a poker face. I can't imagine how I got a photo without shaking the camera.

This photo with him running his hand through his hair was the funniest one. And then staring into space with that pensive look. Not only is he a wonderful son, but he has a great sense of humor, too.

Thanks for your kind comments on my previous two posts! It's so fun to get your messages.

What a ham! Love the scarf - and have to admit that I'm tempted myself...

Yeah, those Noro colorways are downright mesmerizing.

Love the pics of your son. What a hoot!
I have yet to knit with Noro. I think I heard once that it was scratchy, but I don't know how true it is.
Great scarf though. The colors are perfect for a man.
