Silky Goodness....

I was so excited when I received a parcel last week loaded with Silky Noro Goodness!!!! I've always admired Noro from a far, dreaming of the day our paths would meet.... Now that they have I am definitely not disappointed, this yarn is everything I had ever imagined it would be and much, much more!!!
This humble 100g ball is destined to transform a simple scarf pattern I've been working on into a master piece.... :) On another yarn-y note, I've been busily playing around with crochet beret's this past week and am now finally pleased with my latest 'felted' creation.....
I used Cascade's Bulky Leisure which is a super soft 50:50 blend of Alpaca and Cotton. The 50% Alpaca lends itself to felting nicely, creating just the slightest 'brushed' effect when washed in a hot soapy mix... It made for the perfect head warming device on Saturday night as the temps dropped into the negatives and we enjoyed a bonfire with some gorgeous friends... (Millie and I in the glow of the fire)

  4. Your beret looks lovely and warm. We went to a bonfire and camp oven stew and damper night at a friend's place up the road on Saturday night too. Aren't they the best.

  6. Ooooh yummy Noro! I fondle it whenever I see it in a yarn shop, but I haven't purchased any yet. I'd love to make a sweater from it. Can't wait to see your scarf!
