I really love Noro. I know a lot of knitters don't but I absolutely love it. While I probably wouldn't knit a sweater with some of their yarns (Kureyon, I'm looking at you) there are lots of other projects I would attempt. Unfortunately I have fallen madly in love with making Lanesplitters and already have several more planned.

Pattern: Lanesplitter
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden [7 skeins 358 grey-black-purple; 770 yards]
Needle Size: 4mm

I've made Lanesplitter before but I didn't use Noro and instead opted for a solid on solid look. So when i found this colourway of Silk Garden I just went for it. First, I love knitting it. It''s a mindless knit but the constant colour changes make it not boring at all. It's also incredibly warm. It's perfect for winter but it can get a little hot with intense indoor heating. I'm willing to suffer through it though because I love the look of it. Unfortunately I didn't really follow the pattern for length and just went with a skirt I liked the fit of already and because of this it looks great standing up but is a little short when sitting down. Considering that this pattern is known to grow a little I'm not too worried about it. The only downfall is that I wear tights underneath and little fuzzies end up all over them underneath the skirt but because no one sees it, it's not really that big of an issue.

I'm not as in love with the second one I made in Kureyon. While I love green and pink together I'm just not really loving the sudden pink and should have cut it out. I'm thinking of going back and fixing this. Either way i see lots more in my future.
