Noro Time

It looks like Noro is having a resurgence, and we are totally on board. First, the new stuff.
Please welcome Noro Silk Garden Sock Solo. While technically a sock weight yarn, I would not recommend this for socks. It would be absolutely amazing for shawls, scarves, and fingering weight sweaters. The colors are all quite something, and the texture is a little bit nubbly and rustic.
Maybe it's this new spring-like weather, but this one really grabbed my attention.

Love all those colors. I am itching to see how this one knits up. Maybe just an easy peasy ribbed scarf or something. Or maybe my Firefly Bias Scarf from awhile back. Oooo...I like that plan.

Speaking of easy peasy, we received this lovely ribbed scarf knit up in Kureopatora. Cast on 39 stitches, knit 3, purl 3 until you run out of yarn. The simple design really shows off the yarn.

We just restocked our big tub o' Kureopatora, too, so there are plenty of color choices. Sally designed her popular Color Therapy Cowl using two different colorways.
Finally, Ann's Sori Bashi Scarf is up for sale on Ravelry. She used two balls of Noro Taiyo Sport for her scarf. The stitches are so delicate and lovely. Ann really used the yarn to full effect in this beautiful crochet design.
If you are itching to knit with some color as spring pops in Portland, we have plenty of Noro to suit your needs. Come on in. The colors are even better in person.
