Dreaming in Orange – Ribbon Lace Scarf Again

The color orange seems to be peaking out this season. It started as more of a pumpkin color which inspired me to knit the Luna Moth Shawl in rust angora (discovered in my stash). Lately, orange making more of a splash in the display windows on Fifth Avenue.  This orange is a brighter color. It’s the main highlight at the local Club Monaco (where black, white and grey are always in style! Remember this is New York City.)

This color trend combined with the ever present scarf to accessorize every outfit has inpsired me to knit a holiday present for my sister-in-law using the Noro Lilly (which is a 70% cotton/30% silk blend from The Point) which is a dream to knit with. I am embarking on another Ribbon Lace Scarf from Knitty Summer 2008.  In general, I get bored knitting the same pattern more than once but for some reason I just love this pattern.
