Can you resist a new yarn?


I have been dreaming of the Cashmere Island by Noro since I've discovered it somewhere on the web, and after a bit of procrastination (or shall I call it a yarn diet? what a ridiculous thought!) I went and ordered a skein.

Not long after its arrival, I was already on the sofa casting on for a scarf - and tried it on to the Zigzag Stripes Scarf of Debbie Bliss featured in Scarf Style...

By Sunday evening, despite having been out for most of the day, I had finished knitting the first skein and went off to get two more from Ebay.

I love the way the colour changes, and I think that this yarn would make a great Clapotis.
And by the way, I found out that the Cashmere Island sold here has 10g more than the one sold in the US... how odd is this?

Love your zigzag scarf. I've wanted to try that pattern for a long time.

Does that Noro cashmere have knots and sticks and stuff in it like the Silk Garden does?

Thank you :) The first skein I have used did not have any knots at all, which I loved. Two more to finish the scarf have arrived today, so there's hope that it wasn't just a lucky skein!
