Whenever I see a skein of Noro in a colour combo I like, or if I am at a LYS and want a ball of yarn to cheer me up, I buy Noro. The way it changes colours so subtly makes it a lot of fun to knit, plus I like the rusticness of the thick/thin quality of the yarn (the breaking and knots bug me a little, but not enough to override the joy I get from the pretty colours and gradual stripes).
When we went to the camp last weekend, I wanted something fun to knit, and didn't feel like another pair of socks, so I went stash diving and found a few skeins of Noro, and grabbed my 101 Yarn Shop Favorites One Skein Wonders book, and headed out the door.
When we arrived, a quick flick though the book found a bunch of suggestions for single skeins of Noro Kuyeon, and I settled in on the Ribbed Cap by Hannah Fettig.
This one was finished that evening and is colourway # 148
This one was cast on the next morning and finished Monday evening. I lost the ballband for this one (it might be 199).
I love me some self striping, funky coloured, bright and cheery yarn!
