Words: I eat them

So it’s possible that in the past I may have claimed to hate Noro yarns.  Feels like twine… makes my hands ache etc.  I now take that back (well, I still hate Silk Garden and Kureyon) because I have a new love!

This lovely yarn is Noro Kochoran (wool, angora, and I think silk) colorway #1. OK, so I haven’t knit with it yet, but it’s soft and lovely!  I love the colors, which are very muted for Noro.  I am on a quest to find non-alpaca soft yarns since my allergy appeared.  I plan to make a very plain scarf out of this yarn (I have two skeins) to match my new winter coat!

I love this coat!  Actually, I love coats in general… our coat closet is stuffed full of them (I must have 7 or 8 wool coats) and I get so excited every year when it’s coat season (sadly, it’s still in the 80s here… where is fall?)

I’ve finished the top half of the tilted duster (fronts, back, and sleeves) and will seam them tonight so that I can begin the skirt.  This project is so quick, and I love that it’s knit in so many pieces!

Now I must get ready for 4 hours of teaching… Wednesdays are rough for me (I get so tired teaching) but it’s ok because tomorrow begins my weekend, and Marc has promised we will go for sushi!
