Nuts About Noro


After staring at the "New Age Teal" colored Juliet for longer than I care to mention I was in dire need of some new eye candy. What better way to cheer up your bored eyeballs than to knit with some Noro. I have been wanting to knit the Counterpane Carpet Bag pattern by Carrie Brenner for quite some time now. So I raced upstairs grabbed some Noro from my stash and got to work. This pattern is in the Handknit Holidays book by Melanie Falick. If you do not own it........shame on you!!! It is one of my very favorite books. I highly recommend it. I am in love with the scallop pattern used for the bag. Oh and let's not forget......I have mad love for Noro. Aaaaahhhhhhh Noro you make my heart pitter patter.
