Noro! Noro! Noro!

It's here! It's arrived! It's beyoootiful!

I haven't even taken it out of the package because I am too afraid to spoil it.

This is Noro Silk Garden in colourway no 37.

Siow Chin from HK helped enabled me. Noro Silk Garden costs less than US$10.00 in Hong Kong and the postage is half of what I would have to pay if I get it from UK or US.

Still it is the most expensive yarn purchase I have made to date.

Now if only my Jane Ellison book will get here so I can start on Butterfly.

Last night I was still too disheartened to knit for myself so I started Cute Patootie using the Paton's Bumblebee I got for my son's project. This knit is going to my friend Jean's little boy. I have finished the back and am starting the front tonight.

As for my son... I have decided to knit him Knitty's Devan sweater with some sock yarn I am expecting in the mail.

I'll be in Bangkok for 4 days over the weekend and will be checking out the yarn and craft stores there. I got a few leads courtesy of Bangkok Mom who is not a knitter but has kindly given some directions to several possibilities. SO expect a full update next week.

Hi Mona,

The Noro yarn is great. Is it silk or wool? Hope I can get that too. How much is it plus the postage?
