With Silk Garden You Can Create Something Absolutely Unique 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love Noro yarns. I am a beginner-ish knitter. I can do the knit stitch and the purl stitch. I've made lots of scarves and now am making lots of leg warmers. As a beginner, I like when the yarn itself does some of the work, like striping. There are a ton of well-behaved. self-striping yarns out there, but what is so wonderful about Noro is its wild and crazy unexpectedness - the thicks, the thins, the general messiness of the striping. And the gorgeous colors! Definitely not well-behaved. I like Silk Garden because it doesn't itch against the skin. But, what I really love is that you can combine different color lines, because many of them share colors, like turquoise or lavender or shocking pink. You can combine them seamlessly and create your own scarf of many colors, totally surprising, original and unique. I just received six each of 84, 279 and 381. I can't wait to put them together. I once knitted a scarf using leftover scraps from other Silk Garden projects. Wow.! My friends think I'm some kind of knitting genius!
