The Year of Noro

Look what I've got:

It's one of Noro's new yarns, Silver Thaw. The colors are much more vivid than this picture shows.

Here's what I'm making:
It's Mavis from the new Naturally Noro. The patterns are by Jane Ellison. The yarn feels good as I work it. It's softer than Kureyon and a little more substantial than Silk Garden and not as fuzzy as Kochoran.

I think this is going to be Noro's year. All of the yarns--new and old--have really strong, vibrant colorways. And the Cash Iroha colors have to be seen to be believed (their website just doesn't do it justice). For some reason I'm having trouble linking, but you can check them out at www.knittingfever.com.

I just started this last night. It's moving pretty quickly. I should have it finished pretty soon.
