September Knitting

We were off to a very warm start for our first knitting night...
It was so good to see everyone!
We featured our Noro Yarns and some great small projects
(would be good for gifting).
The Tracey Cowl Neck Warmer, by Angela Juergens, is a quick knit.   It uses an aran weight yarn.  I made this sample using 1.5 balls of Noro Kureyon, but it could be made using Noro Silk Garden as well.  The pattern calls for Noro Taiyo.  Noro Taiyo is a new yarn for us.   It is very soft, as it is made of 40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% nylon and 15% wool.  One 220 yard ball will make this neck warmer.  We have three new color ways of Noro Taiyo.

Some inspiration for our Noro Yarns:  Taiyo, Kureyon, and Silk Garden

Noro Silk Garden Lite was used to make the cute wrist warmers, that we have featured previously.  It is a DK yarn made of 45% silk, 45% mohair and 10% wool.  (136 yards)

Anyone who brings in a project made, using noro yarns, can get their name in an extra drawing next month. 
Our next knitting event will be one week early, due to Halloween.  We will meet on 10/24/13.
