Hello to all our Knitter’s Attic blog readers. We have fabulous news: NORO IS BACK!

The brainchild of its Japanese creator Eisaku Noro more than four decades ago, this hand spun yarn is great for knitting sweaters, cardigans, and toques. As well as longer pieces and more elaborate pieces of clothing. As you can see from the picture on the side, Noro yarn comes in a plethora of colours, intertwining with one another to create a fabulous and visually appealing knitting project or in solid colours, but still with the same visually appealing effect.

Knitter’s Attic is happy that again, we are carrying Noro in the Attic.

If you are experiencing slight knitter’s block, and are unsure of how to use Noro yarn or what you could possibly knit with this material. Do not worry, we have you covered. In the store, we have a little table with some chairs set up, and the owner of Knitter’s Attic is always willing to sit down and have a chat. Better yet, why not come on over to the Knitter’s Attic, and we will sit you down with Noro’s recent publication to the side there. Take your time and flip through the pages, get some opinions from the staff and/or the owner of Knitter’s Attic, buy some Noro yarn, select the right needles, if you do not already have them at home, and you will be on your way in no time to creating beautifully finished knitting projects.

Some possible creations with Noro are A-Line Raglan Tunic, Batwing Pullover & Cowl, Bobble-and-Vine Mittens, Cabled Beret, Chevron Scarf, Color-shift Cowl, Colorblock Bag, Colorblock Fisherman’s Sweater, Convertible Button Cowl, Crew-neck Pullover, Double-Crochet Cowl, Faux Cables Long Cardigan; Garter Triangle Shawl; Garter Wave Scarf; Gauntlets; Heart Blankets; Lace-and-Rib Socks; Lacy Cuffs; One Cowl Three Ways; Oversized Cowl; Oversized Tunic; Oversized Vest; Pompom Beanie; Rectangular Poncho; Relaxed Cardigan; Reversible Cowl; Ripple Scarf; Side-to-Side Wrap; Smocked Fingerless Mitts; Striped-and-Textured Cowl; Traveling Stitches Socks; Turtleneck; Twisted-stitch Earflap Beanie; Whirl Beanie; Woven Cape; Wrap Front Pullover; ZigZag Lace Cowl.

These are just a few wonderful designs submissions to Noro by knitter’s just like yourself. You can find more information about Noro products on their official magazine website. You can also come down to Knitter’s Attic and ask our staff and owner about Noro yarn materials, too.
