Remember the newsletter article I did on getting bored? Part of the reason we get bored with a project is the color. Certainly, stitch patterns can get boring (miles and miles of stockinette), but lots of the time it's the color. We love it at first, but pretty soon our eyes get accustomed to it, and it's not as exciting as it was when we started. It's kind of sensory overload. You know how you can get sick of eating ice cream (I know, it's a stretch, but stay with me) but have a bite of salted nuts and before you know it you've finished some indecent quantity of the stuff? That's why Bruster's White Turtle is so deadly for me. Excuse me, I'll be right back...
Anyway, this post is about Noro, which is never boring.
At the Noro event in La Plata Friday, Susan bought a bag of Silk Garden in this absolutely gorgeous new colorway for a top down wrap sweater
Soft muted shades of pink and cream and blue. Spectacular. And yesterday (Tuesday) she was in with a huge chunk of her sweater done.
"It's so much fun to knit - I keep waiting to see which color is coming next, and I just can't put it down," she explained. It totally is, too. The thing that's also nice about this cardigan in Noro is that it's worked in one piece so the colors match up on either side of the neckline - an issue that some folks have with Noro garments. It's a perfect Noro project, really. Here's one all complete so you can see how nicely the colors line up.
We still have a nice stock of most of the Silk Garden colors, but do hurry, as the best ones always sell out first!
