knitting with noro

This was my first time in the colourful world of Noro. I'd never bought a yarn just to see what all the fuss and bother was about, but I'm glad I did.  The Kureyon knits up something pretty, don't you think? 

Folks on ravelry complain of knots and stuff in the skeins. I found one knot, and only a few little twiggies. The stuff is a bit scratchy off the ball but apparently softens up with washing. My only complaint is that it gets so thin in places.  It was so thin it broke as I was binding off, so that kind of sucked. But I suppose most of those rustic qualities can be overlooked when you're working with such cool colours. 

The pattern and all my notes on ravelry.
