This one is in Noro Odori Colorway 878
Silk, wool, angora and mohair blend.
To me it feels like cotton.
Yarn on clearance for 13 dollars or 50% off at Mosaic Studio in Mt. Prospect Illinois.
ON WITH THE MEME:
Let's have fun....I love Monday Meme day!
*Do you love Noro or not so much?
(Both. I'm cheating already. I love their colorways in skeins, but I don't always like the way they knit up with the crazy colors.)
*Are you more likely to wear a
poncho or a shawl?
(Shawls always look like I'm trying to pull off a look that I simply cannot accomplish.
This one is tough. Answer: Poncho. Don't judge me please. Now I think I better knit one. I don't even have the super ugly one I knit in 2004 anymore.
It was last seen in a cat bed .....)
*Which brings you more joy,
Casting on or Casting off?
(Oh always casting on. The eternal knit optimist here. Sometimes when I am casting off I'm just so done with it that it is more a break up than a finish.)
*Are you more likely to knit a baby a hat or booties?
(Hat. For sure) Little baby heads are so dang cute with hats on. I live in a cold climate....and my mom was a huge believer in putting a hat on a baby whenever it went out of the house. More on sweet mom later this week.)
*Does anyone in your family fall asleep in a chair or do they fall asleep in bed?
(Fireman dozes in the chair....then he gets in bed and can't sleep...go figure)
*Would you rather win a hot air balloon ride or a dinner cruise?
(Now food is involved, but I won't let it sway this one. I would like to try a hot air balloon ride someday.)
*Do you watch the awful news or do you avoid it?
(I watch it. Somedays I won't turn it on until after the first ten minutes of horror. I do have an insatiable need to watch the weather segment. This despite the fact that they pretty much tell us what the weather did all day, and then guess at tomorrow.)
Do you go to the movies or wait for them on cable?
(I prefer to watch them at home.
I can't resist that buttered popcorn smell and it costs more than the movie tickets and I'm cheap. Plus I can CONTROL the movie and not miss a scene when I have to inevitably have a potty break. Better lighting for knitting during movies at home, no question. )
Thanks and I wish you all a great MONDAY!
