Good news for Noro enthusiasts!
Noro Knitting Magazine Spring/Summer 2017 Issue 10 is here, and there are 30 impeccable color drenched projects in these pages. Summer tees, sweet blankets, great warps and ponchos, and a great pirce of lace stitches. Enjoy!
Noro Taiyo Yarn is one of our favorite Noro yarns. A great combination of 40% Cotton, 30% Silk, 15% Wool, and 15% Nylon, it is terrific for summery projects. The cotton is lighter and softens the color palette, the silk provides shine and texture, while the wool gives some extra body and bounce, plus a little nylon for durability. Both of these projects are terrific in Taiyo!
The “Heirloom Spectacular” afghan by Anna-Beth Meyer-Graham, only takes 6 skeins of Taiyo!

If warmer weather has you wondering how to use Noro’s lovely yarns, the answer is in this issue: it’s all about lace! Loose, lacey, and lovley, open stitch patterns show off the colors and let you explore fun new stitches, while still making something that you’ll enjoy in the warmer months. Another great thing about these lacey designs, is that gauge is less critical when you’re making a shawl, poncho, or throw, so you can swap out different yarns depending on the final feel you’re going for. Each stitch pattern shows off Noro’s unique colorways a little differently – so go ahead and explore!
