*Insert Homer-esque drool here*
I have just bought my first three skeins of Noro.

I'm drooling and beaming like a doofus! I'm sure people on the tram thought I was crazy. It's such a weird feeling! You know that little twang you get when you make eye contact with someone you fancy? That's how I felt with my bag of wool, knowing three beautiful skeins of Noro Kureyon was just waiting to be knitted.

I'm making a booga bag. This is the happiest day of my life. (Sorry sweetie).

:XX: = me
:sunny: also = me

It's weird to admit it, buy finding that 'perfect' yarn is a bit like falling in love. This is the ONLY place I could get away with saying that !

I know what you mean! I made a felted bag with Noro. When I started my next project with a different yarn I was like 'meh'. What colorway did you get?

Have fun!

I bought the kureyon 130 to make the Head Start hats for the grandbabies. It's on this page:

I wanna do the Booga too!
My LYS said they didn't have color 95, and the gal even said the owner wasn't going to order from Noro anymore 'cuz "she's had *problems* with them." (???)
The place I went to on the way to my brother's in Mpls. had sever colors and other Noro yarns and didn't mention any "problems" but they didn't have the color I wanted. the other colors they had, albeit purdy, were darker than I was wanting right now.

And, I got that same feeling as you all when I found some teeny hanks of Lorna's Angel angora blend..... uuuuuuoooooohhhhhh! I'm gonna make the wrist warmers from the Patter Central site I printed off to practice using dpns. And I had my hands on some teenier balls of another brand of 100% angora at prev. mentioned yarn shop, but decided to forgo them for some Debbie Bliss cotton for a "chunky cardigan" from the Cherished Babies book by Erika Knight.
