I have been accused of using too many drab colors in my knitting. While I don't think the accusation is justified I do admit that I have a preference for grey and most other neutrals. However, I think this new scarf gives the lie to the judgement.

I don't know if Noro makes this yarn anymore. It's Cotton Kureyon, 70% cotton, 30% wool. It's not quite as rough as regular Kureyon but the colors are just as vibrant and unusual. I'm using an Artyarns pattern, the Zigzag scarf. I had tried a couple of other ideas but the strong horizontal striping was too much for the stitch patterns. I made a couple of these scarves last year. They're more interesting than the famous multi-directional diagonal scarf but are just as easy and addictive.
