I realised the title of this post is somewhat of a misnomer, as this is not the first Noro ever. However it is the first ball of Noro I have ever bought and used.
And I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have long wanted to try Noro after reading Alice from http://crochethealingandraymond.wordpress.com/ post about it.
And to date I have been too
I couldn't wait to start making something with it, and decided because I had only purchased on skein, to make a scarf.
So I made a scarf, but it ended up like one of those really skinny eighties ties.
So I frogged it.
Then I decided it was the right size for a beanie.
So I made a beanie. But somehow it ended up with a weird bobble pointy shape on top and did not look right. And given how much I loved this wool, whatever I made had to be perfect.
So I frogged it again!!!
(noticing a theme here???)
Here it is in its transformation from scarf to beanie.
I tried again, and this time I made a beanie that was perfect, and I am crazy happy with it.
Here it is: Ta Da
It's perfect, fits perfectly, and is super warm.
In fact I wore it when we went out to a Winter Solstice thingo last night.
There were bands, fire twirlers, a lantern parade, and a huge bonfire at the end.
I will leave you with some blurry out of focus photos of it, and hope that your week will be superb, and filled with lovely happy things and people.
(Also thanks so much for all the lovely lovely comments on my last post)
