52 Week Challenge - Brenda






Jan. 23/09 - Just completed my Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn - Feather & Fan Scarf, total 456 yards (420 Metres) I posted the in progress photo on my earlier post. I still have one full skein of this yarn, don't know what I will make with that yet. The colour repeats are long, and although this is Noro Sock Yarn, I'm not sure I would like to do socks with it. It is a single ply wool yarn, goes from thread thin in one spot to almost worsted bulkiness within inches. Makes for a nubby look as you can see on the close up picture. I don't think this would feel very comfortable in a sock. Perhaps the other ball will become a hat or wrist warmers.

So now it is on to my next project, socks I think. Hope to get another project completed for January.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!

I made a few scarves and hats out of Noro Silk garden Lite this fall, and I love to wear them. Yours with the sock yarn cam out even better.
