Playing around with my first pattern attempt for Noro - this is Silk Garden Light in color 2048. Only have one ball.


Should I order more?

I love Noro Silk Garden. I haven't tried the lite.

I thinks this looks lovely.

Lindsey said...

No. It obscures the pattern and will be a waste of all that charting. The colors are lovely. I'd go for something simpler.

Sara said...

It is a beautiful color. I just looked at Noro yesterday and I have to agree with Lindsey that it looks better with simple repetitive patterns.

Ummm... No matter what pattern you do, if you rely on those beautiful long color repeats to be part of your design, then get some more yarn. Get plenty. Really. Then when you run into the inevitable dreaded NoroKnot and the color changes instantly to something quite different, you can unravel a fresh ball till you get to the color you want to continue with. Noro yarns are beautiful, but I don't use them any more because of the knots, which badly screwed up several projects. You know the word "FUBAR"? I wish Noro would deal with this quality control issue!
