Wow....

I'm not a big Noro fan, but I think this Yuzen has made me think twice about it. Much lighter and softer than the regular Noro, and you just want to keep knitting to see the next colour change. It's 56% wool, 34% silk, and 10% kid mohair.Pattern: Martha-- from Catwalk Book 1 Jenny Watson Designs
Yarn: Noro Yuzen-- 10--50g balls Colour #5
Needles: 3.25mm & 4mm

I think I started this 2 weeks ago and it seemed to just fly off the needles. I even matched up the stripes pretty good, with very little waste. I will admit, there was a little bit of spit splicing goin' on to accomplish this.And can you believe these buttons! It's like they were made for this colourway. I'll be delivering this to Julie on Saturday, so if you want to see it up close, please pop in.

Now, I'm back to the cardigan for the alpaca farm, pictures soon.
