hey there - i work in a yarn store in halifax, canada and we sell lots of noro (10/ cdn per ball). the kureyon is probably the most popular - there's just nothing like if for the colour combinations. i would definitely treat yourself to at least a few balls - i knit the "sophie" bag with just 2 balls of kureyon (trimmed with some leftover brown sheep in black) and love it. so definitely put it on your wish list!
and check out some of the other noro offerings while you're at it... pricey as well but gorgeous. they have a cashmere blend (cash iroha i think it's called) that's to die for. the problem with working in this great store (tangled skeins is the name for any local halifax/dartmouth folks who've yet to discover it!) is that it takes your knit addiction to the next level... so many incredible yarns out there.
anyway, i hope the noro fairy visits you soon! cheers!
