One Skein Goodness

Firstly, from the inner recesses of my heart and soul, thank you all for your lovely supportive comments to my last post. You have no idea how much your well wishes mean to me. You guys are great and I will try my damnedest to keep on writing despite my current tumult.

HUGE XO's all around!

So, even though I was silent for the past few months, my hands never ceased to move. Sure, I've had a bit of trouble in the design department simply because my brain power has been focused elsewhere, as you can imagine, but my addiction to all things fiber held steady nonetheless. As a result, I've been knitting and crocheting OPP's (other people's patterns) during my period of silence, which is definitely a good thing because I tend to learn a lot about other's design processes and construction techniques when working through said projects. Inspiration for later application to be sure.

Anyway, one such inspired and fast knit recently completed is the One Skein A Stole by Katja Jordan. The pattern calls for one skein of Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn to create the netted beauty below...



Got to love those Noro colorways. Makes simple projects such as this a pleasure to knit up...



I will be giving this to a friend who turned fabulously 40 two weeks before I did during the month of Taurus. She's not a knitter, but I'm hoping she'll enjoy this nonetheless. Good things come in small packages you know...



More FO's to come!

Noro has to be one of my most favourite yarns - this is lovely.

Love how those simple stitches make the colors the star!

Bonus- the more silver in the hair, the more this color will set it off :)

OPP - lol! Glad to have you back.

The scarf is lovely.

I agree with you about Noro. The color ways make an easy (no thinking, please) project interesting.

I made three Noro striped scarves this past spring for that very reason.
