The Greatest Yarns of All Time, Yarn #2

Great Yarn, #2

I have never been a Noro freak. It's very interesting. I love what it can do. I enjoyed doing Lizard Ridge:

I am loving Bobby's Garden:

Until I knit this hexagon, I never knew the absolute gorgeosity of Silk Garden:

Noro Silk Garden is a blend of 45% Silk, 45% Kid Mohair, and 10% Lambs Wool. This particular bit of color #245 has a high silk content. The luster and softness of this little hexagon gave me my Noro "aha" moment. I am now a devotee.


  1. I am going to send you an invite to a group I have here called the Lesser Known Skeins. It's a great group of fiber arts that blog. Don't feel you have to join, I just thought now that you have a blog you may be interested.

  2. I completely agree. I really enjoyed the noro striped scarf, and the ten stitch blanket opened my eyes to the potential of Noro, but Bobby;s Garden has me totally in love with Noro.
