Knitting Bloggers = Enablers

You all know who you are. Marlene with her cute needle felt bears, Curlie Girl with her gorgeous bears and projects and last but definately not least, thank you to Random Knits for yet another project to obsess over. I really enjoy reading other knitter's blog's and their daily travails and triumphs with needles, fiber, patterns, etc...but, man oh man, I haven't been so tempted, so often in my life. It first started with the Rogue, then the Charlotte's Web shawl and now I'm drooling yet again over this...


The Butterfly

[sigh] Isn't it lovely. I must make this and I have a good reason why I should. I've not knit with any Noro yarns, as of yet. I've always shied away from it because I didn't like the texture at all...but, for this, I can suffer. I've heard Noro softens significantly after a wash, so that pleases me. If anyone has knit with Kureyon, I'd love to hear what your experience with it was and how you find the overall wear of the yarn.

I finished my red Celtic Cap. I'll post a pic tomorrow. I also placed an order for two colours to finish up my Charlotte. I hope to recieve that soon so I can finish that up. So, it looks like I'll primarily be working on my Field of Flowers shawl this week. I'll see about trying to take a pic of it, but it's all bunched onto a circular and I don't think you'd be able to tell what the heck it was anyway.

I'm glad to see you ordered some yarn to finish Charlotte...I haven't jumped on that bandwagon, yet, but I am sure someday...

I totally understand the recent Noro pattern obsession. I am beginning to really want to do Klaralund. :-)

Michelle you are quite the little enabler yourself! I believe that it was on your site that I first spotted the Rogue. It was also you who flaunted those lovely pictures of the Vest of Many Stitches that I just HAD to add to my "must do" list.

I've knit with Noro Kureyon, but only for felted projects. It is a bit scratchy, but the colors are so beautiful. Best of luck with The Butterfly!

Can't wait to see your Field of Flower Shawl. It sounds just beautiful. Here is a link to see the inside of the thrummed mittens http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/archives/2004_09.html
Scroll down to the Sept. 15th entry. I am enjoying these mittens . They sure are warm.
