Back to basics!

Narberth, Pembrokeshire, UK

After finishing the YoP knit I brought away with us (more on that later) I found myself on holiday with a ball of Noro Kureyon Sock and needles but no access to my pattern library, which is stored online.

I will admit that at one point I considered asking someone to text me a pattern line by line - a kind of mystery text-along - but thought better of it. So it was left to memory.

The only pattern I could remember was the very first I knitted back in January to make my cowl.

It's been quite amusing to come back to this after a few months - it seemed a little complicated the first time around, and I didn't really understand the instructions, I just followed them blindly, but is the simplest pattern! It's not quite what I had in mind for this yarn, but I think it might make a pretty scarf for someone.

Sent from my iPhone on a wing and a prayer.


  1. ooooh I LOVE it.How much yarn will it need?

  2. This looks lovely! The yarn is beautiful!

  3. The scarf is going to look awesome with this yarn.

  4. oooo those colours are lush. I am about to start a similar project as a pattern test for a friend.

  5. I haven't bought any Noro b/c it's a bit scratchy for me but gosh, the colorings are just gorgeous.

  6. It's beautiful. My LYS has just started to stock Noro and flip it's expensive, will have to find the perfect pattern for it. I have a feeling this might just be added to the list!

  7. That is gorgeous - lovely colours in the yarn. I'm going to keep a look out for pics of the finished scarf....!

  8. LOVE the pink and purple Noro! I've never seen that colourway here before! It's funny how the patterns we begin with seem so hard, but a few months later seem so easy, its how we can tell we have developed and improved! You are right, it will make a beautiful present :O)
    Love ALice XXX

  9. That's very pretty! Funny how patterns stay in the memory, but stuff like remembering to read the gas meter flies right out.

  10. Ha ha was going to leave a comment along the exact same lines as Alice above, so scratch that! Instead I'll wish you a happy holiday and look forward to seeing the new FO! Kier x
