Did you notice? I’ve had a change around….. de-cluttering my blog if you like… new background, new header, NO PINK!!!!!
It feels all fresh and new when it pops up on my laptop, quite summery in fact, and I think I like it, but it’s so different to what it has always been, I’m still trying it on for size!
I’m having a love affair with Noro right now…. this is not the first time, you’ll remember if you have been following my blog right from the very, very start… I fell IN love with Noro, then out of love with it, then we had another brief affair which ended in tears and a feeling of being ripped off…
It’s all because of those random colour changes, where you’re knitting along, happily creating with the most expensive yarn you’ve ever bought, then BANG! Neon yellow right in the middle of all your browns. Or in my latest case, yuckyellow and a revolting orange mixed in with my teals and magentas.
I decided to “stash bust” last night for the first time ever… I don’t believe in stash busting as a rule, stashes should grow to gigantic proportions in my mind… but I pulled out the two balls of Noro Kureyon I purchased in August as a birthday present for self, and then tried to make into something beautiful until I discovered the ugly colours hidden deep inside the ball.
Well… I made flowers with them and they are so amazing I went to my LYS and bought the ball of Noro silk garden I’ve been lusting after for months….
The affair is back on!
While I heart pink and it’s no secret, these are my other favourite colours… I want to dive right into that colour and soak it all up… my goodness! And crocheting with it is a multi-sensory experience…. I can’t wait to show you the results!
KB texted me before asking how my day was going… I replied “gd! Finishd my transcript yay, hving a lve affair with Noro. C u latr.”
I haven’t heard back from her which means she has heard quite enough about Noro for this week….
Have a beautiful day!
Lots of love from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
