Nothin' Like Noro

Two knitterly things to share.
1.)  The Rowan Felted Tweed arm warmers

 are finished.

2.) A bag full of Noro Silk Garden found its way 
to my home from Main Street Yarn in Milton.
 Two colour ways were hunted down, #377 and #275.

 Noro is interesting. These skeins are all #275. . . 

 and these are #377. 
Makes for addictive knitting because the combinations are endless.

 Knit two rows with one colour then, two rows with the other.
A few months ago I made a scarf and arm warmers like this.

 A simple straightforward design transforms into something spectacular.
Noro Silk Garden is a bit 'rustic', but it does soften with wear.

Well . . . back to work.

Two distinct ways to get colour into your knitting...fair isle with the precise placement of shade exactly where you want it...then the randomness of Noro. They both work spectacularly!

I love fair isle using Noro, too. Talk about random!
