Noro Sock Yarn


One can paint with watercolours or oils or acrylics, but with yarn, too! I bought Noro Sock Yarn to crochet a scarf. The colour of the yarn is amazing; but the quality isn't as good as I would have expected ...sometimes the thread is  v e r y  thin, like a sewing thread, then it is again so thick that you can hardly manage it to get it through the chain stitch...All in all, I'm pleased because of the colours, although I think the price for the yarn is too high...

Man kann mit Wasserfarben, Öl oder Acryl malen, aber auch mit Wolle! Ich habe mir Noro Sockengarn gekauft. Die Farben sind wunderbar, aber die Qualität des Fadens ist nicht das, was ich erwartet habe. Manchmal ist das Garn dünn wie ein Nähfaden; dann hat man wiederum Schwierigkeiten, es überhaupt durch eine Luftmasche zu bekommen, so dick ist es plötzlich...Alles in allem  bin ich zufrieden, weil die Farben so schön sind, obwohl ich glaube, daß der Preis für das Garn einfach zu hoch ist.

These colors are definitely like painting with yarn! Makes me yearn for spring as they seem very spring-like colors. I really like your new header for your blog, too! Vibrant and bold!

I haven't used their sock yarn before, but recently I did crochet a pair of fingerless mitts in Noro Kureyon and found it strange stuff! It has little bits and pieces of twig in it ... Gorgeous colours, though! Will we see a picture of you wearing the scarf - or is it a gift for someone?

When I visit your blog, I'm always struck by the textures that you use. LOVE IT! And now the yarn, too. YES!

Thank you, friends!
The scarf will be for me; I still have to crochet about 20 squares...
Oh, and I'm happy that you like the new blog header and my textures and colours!;-))
