Noro Love...:)



Look what arrived in the post today!.....


Lois from the Knitter's Guild told me about some web sites that have Noro sales. I bought 7 balls of Noro Furin reduced at $7 US a ball. The Noro Kureyon Sock wool was $11.50 US. While the Australian dollar is so high I thought I'd get a few things that would be double the price over here in the wool shops. The web site I bought this wool from is Yarnbow and the shipping rate is $13.95 US. I'm eyeing off some Noro Retro at the moment.



I bought this Araucanda wool for $6.75 US.

Such pretty colours - I love the mix of pinks and purples.

I love Noro and its beautiful colours! I wish I could knit more than a scarf, my mum is a good knitter, but is not confidant with overseas patterns or yarns, I think she'd freak out with Noro :( I'll stick to sewing though methinks. Can't wait to see what you knit with it!

Glad to see your wooly mail arrived, looks lush! Can't wait to see some projects, I am making my way through my stash and am working on gifts for expectant mummas atm, love the instant gratification of baby gear.

Noro is such a colourful yarn; it's easy to see why many people love it.

The dollar hit a new high today - tempting...

Ooooh! A little jealous over here. LOL I am still trying to wade my way through my ridiculous stash. I totally gave away 3 huge bags full and then my daughter gave me more. I do so love wool but so many odd balls become a bit hard to use up when you feel like making bigger projects. I am thinking winter socks are on the agenda. :-)
