up for your consideration: a light, little shawlette done up in lace-weight noro sekku. for those of you uninitiated into the world of knitting, noro is a japanese yarn company that specializes in self-striping and space-dyed yarns with colors so beautiful they hurt. i love noro, and i am always on the lookout for ways to use it that aren't going to be too overpowering. or too expensive--a sweater in just about any noro yarn is likely to run you $100 or maybe even more. this project is a good blend of being something i am likely to actually use and not being too hard on the wallet.
i used to be all about pink and green together, and then my interest in that particular combination started to wane. it can end up looking a lot preppier than i generally want to look. however, seeing this hot pink and almost forest green together (not to mention the other pinks and greens) makes me want to give it another go.
- materials: one skein of noro sekku, 24" size 3 needles
- cost: yarn and needles were in my stash, but i happen to remember that the yarn cost $18.
