Striped Scarf

I made a striped scarf with Noro Silk Garden (Silk, Kid Mohair and Lambswool) and Noro Kureyon (100% wool). The Silk Garden helps make the scarf a little less scratchy but really Kureyon is not something you want around your neck. It's great for a hat and gloves, which is what I will use for a striped hat (but in a different colorway).

The scarf carries the yarn along the right side so I had to block it to help alleviate the yarn pulling on this side, which made it look really lopsided.

I made a pair of Glovelets for myself using the other ball of yarn intended for the first pair. I made a few modifications to the pattern. I made them shorter on the bottom because I don't like gloves to travel very far down my wrists. Since I was going to use them at work and outside, I made them a smidge longer, going up to my knuckles.
