Noro wool. When I first read about the company and their concept I was most impressed. I wanted to make something. After studying their website and the colour charts, I found that I didn't like their colour combinations that were currently available. Too many colours put together.
Time elapsed and I still wanted to knit with Noro. At a knitting show I saw a kit that used one ball to make a hat. The kit is from Black Sheep and Ewe. Perfect way to try Noro, finally. I cast on this past week and started knitting. i used the 5mm needles recommended in the pattern. Way too small. Moved up to 6 mm needles. That gave a better tension but still too tight of a hat. Daughter suggested that I keep knitting and turn it into a head band for her.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the
progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy
the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit
their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the
cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
black and white shawl for my sister in law. I don't like knitting with 9mm needles, but the effect is pretty so I will stick with it.
I look forward to seeing what you are stitching this week. Mister Linky is waiting below for your link.
