I know. Not everyone is a NORO fan.
But if you are, you will D-I-E when you see the latest addition to the NORO fam!
Or if you are dying to find a new yarn for a new scarf, you'll love this new NORO!
It's called RETRO.
I haven't been excited about a new yarn in a long time!
Here's the story.
My husband had cabin fever yesterday. It was a sorta sunny day. He asked me to go for a drive around the Puget Sound area with him. He wanted to visit all of our old haunts: the neighborhood we were raised in (yeah, 6 houses apart); the schools we went to; the beach he proposed on; the church we went to as kids and got married in; the neighborhood we lived in as newly weds, the house we raised our 5 kids in...the whole nostalgia road!
To reward me (I cry on "nostalgia lane" drives) for going with him..he drove over to West Seattle,
and pulled into an LYS: Seattle Yarn Shop.
(He'd seen it on his route before he retired.)
He even went inside with me and acted interested! We oogled yarn for an hour.
And that's when I saw IT.
Anyway, the interesting thing about the new RETRO: the colorwaves are all in the same color! I fell in love with color 06-dk greens. No matter what color you like, blues, greens, reds, hot pink, greys...
the colorwaves are different nuances of the same color
for the entire 110 yd ball. Some waves are even a tweedy version.
What an interesting concept! A NORO yarn that doesn't mix in 6 "just because we can" weird colors ??!!
All in all...you have to SEE IT to LOVE IT.
Color 06 below:
See the tweedy wave? And BTW, this 06 green "in real
life" is much darker, and the undertones are blue, not yellow.
It's impossible to capture in camera what the eye really sees!
Webs has it, but to find it you have to type NORO RETRO
in the search bar.
If you click NORO from their listing, it doesn't come up yet.
