jumping on the noro bandwagon

noro kureyon, originally uploaded by alicethelma.

Like many a knitter on the internet, I have been bitten by the noro bug and if you are a regular reader of the yarn harlot, you know what I'm talking about. My particular project uses noro kureyon #214 and #149 and it's great mindless meditative knitting for the holidaze.

Ya know, I think noro is gorgeous...but the one time I used it, there were knots and tie on sections, and I was left severely aggravated. But the colors you chose are lovely!

I've never heard of noro, but it looks gorgeous. It also appears to be a natural fiber? What plan do you have for it?

I agree that Noro isnot the softest yarn out there - I have heard it described as being "starched" - but what can I say. I got caught up in the Noro scarf mania.
