*Insert Homer-esque drool here*

I have just bought my first three skeins of Noro.

I’m drooling and beaming like a doofus! I’m sure people on the tram thought I was crazy. It’s such a weird feeling! You know that little twang you get when you make eye contact with someone you fancy? That’s how I felt with my bag of wool, knowing three beautiful skeins of Noro Kureyon was just waiting to be knitted.

I’m making a booga bag. This is the happiest day of my life. (Sorry sweetie).

:XX: = me
:sunny: also = me

:happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

It’s weird to admit it, buy finding that ‘perfect’ yarn is a bit like falling in love. This is the ONLY place I could get away with saying that !

I know what you mean! I made a felted bag with Noro. When I started my next project with a different yarn I was like ‘meh’. What colorway did you get?

Have fun!

oooo i :heart: noro

i’m like that just lookin at it on the internet!!! i want toget someso bad!!! i’m goingtomake mea booga bag also. i want #130. i don’t see it much on the net. i’m hopin onr of my lys will have it!!! :happydance:

I bought the kureyon 130 to make the Head Start hats for the grandbabies. It’s on this page:

I think that is the cutest hat!

I wanna do the Booga too! :happydance:
My LYS said they didn’t have color 95, and the gal even said the owner wasn’t going to order from Noro anymore 'cuz “she’s had problems with them.” (???)
The place I went to on the way to my brother’s in Mpls. had sever colors and other Noro yarns and didn’t mention any “problems” but they didn’t have the color I wanted. the other colors they had, albeit purdy, were darker than I was wanting right now.

And, I got that same feeling as you all when I found some teeny hanks of Lorna’s Angel angora blend… uuuuuuoooooohhhhhh! I’m gonna make the wrist warmers from the Patter Central site I printed off to practice using dpns. And I had my hands on some teenier balls of another brand of 100% angora at prev. mentioned yarn shop, but decided to forgo them for some Debbie Bliss cotton for a “chunky cardigan” from the Cherished Babies book by Erika Knight.

those r the cutest!!! and i’ve got 3 little heads for it!!!

I know the feeling! :heart: Noro Kureyon is just so darn gorgeous. That company knows their colors!

I’ve decided that my booga bag will be my ‘early morning before work project’. So I’ll be getting up earlier and earlier!

It’s absolutely beautiful. I got Colour 52 and I just love seeing the colourways emerge!!

Me love me booga bag!

I just finished the tab-top bag from the “Felted Knits” book…sort of. I made the bottom a little different, with 2 srands of WOTA hollyberry, then #134 Noro Kureyon, and some WOTA blue (not sure exactly which color - it was from some scraps I had in the stash pile) for the tabs and the Noro for the I-cord (BTW, I HATE I-Cord, it’s soooo boring). I finished felting it last night and it’s drying now. My intention was to give it to my best friend, who is coming up this weekend for the dreaded 10-year high school reunion, but I’m not sure I can part with it. I started another one last night, but I have one skein left of the #134 and one of (I think) #52 so I’m going to use them together. I’ll let her pick which one she wants (and cry when it leaves me). So it looks like I’ll be having a few late nights this week to finish the 2nd one before Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I’m at work, so I can’t post a pic, but I’ll try to do it tonight.

Sounds pretty, JLC! Would LOVE to see pics!

Can’t wait to see the latest booga! The Booga site has a page with finished Booga pics…so fun!

I am sure most of you probably already know of this place, but they have really good prices on Kuryeon: Wool Needlework

Have you ordered from them Kemp? I’ve looked, and drooled over the Noro and the prices, but I thought they seemed a little too good to be true, so I’m curious about anyone’s opinions, who have ordered from them. The prices are fantastic and the color selection is really good, I’m just wondering about the service?

I haven’t ordered from them yet, but I keep meaning to. You may want to ask Victoise…or Hilde (she is mentioned in the quote, not sure if she has ordered from them) this is a quote from Victoise previous post:

Ha, what is it about this Noro Kureyon! It’s INCREDIBLE! I fell in the love with the first colour I ever used No. 95 and I do searches all over the place and it’s very hard to find that beautiful colour! pinks and greens. My lys just lowered the price from $8.50 to $8.00 or so… but the colours they have are wretched!

I just received a order from

Wool Needlework Discounter (can’t find the exact address at the moment… Noro Kureyon for $5.75 a skein.
(thanks to Hildie’s tip) Shipping was $8.00 plus however but I got a lot of other stuff.

Noro is so beauitful. they should be making more of it.
