What is it about Noro yarn...

that is so intoxicating? I swear this yarn gives off some sort of fumes that hypnotizes you. I have been knitting on this shawl all week long!


The shawl pattern in Pamuya and you can see it here on Ravelry. Well written pattern with stitch counts for the end of each section to keep you on track.

I love the serendipity of how the drop stitch section of the pattern ended up in that light beige run of the yarn.


Now after all that praise I must admit that this yarn is hard on my hands. They've been achy after a evening session with this shawl.  I think I need to take a break and knit on some socks... any of the 4 or 5 or 6 pairs of half knitted socks I can see from my easy chair would be fine - LOL!

happy knitting-

  1. Your shawl looks gorgeous. I don't wear shawls so I don't knit shawls but I do admire them.

    That's one of my favorite Noro colorways.

  5. Love the color of your yarn and that shawl pattern is very pretty. Oh my - 5 or 6 single socks waiting for their partners! I haven't done 6 socks total yet, but working on #5 sock now.
