Doing the mini-version - to hopefully get a longer, more scarf-like result.

Danish translation is very clear. Unlike so many knitters I didn’t have any trouble at all following directions. Maybe something got lost in translation in the English version…

There is quite a lot of black in the Noro - so the second feather doesn’t really show against the background color. Hopefully it will get better, as I work through the skein - otherwise I’ll have to frog and start over using only the lighter parts of the skein.

It’s official. I hate NORO. Because of the knots - and the mess such a knot makes of the color sequence. I now have to buy another skein of this expensive yarn to be able to finish the project.
I love NORO for the beautiful colors, though.

Had to dry it outside in the sun - because it will have to be wrapped and gifted tomorrow.

My husband made a pin to go with the scarf.
