8 skeins of gorgeous colors.. I've always been fascinated by the colors in Noro yarns and when I saw Sue de-stashing some Noro on Ravelry, I had to have some of it. I bought 4 skeins each in 2 colorways. You might wonder why I am head over heel about Noro. Its mainly because I never thought I will get to meet this yarn in person.

Have you seen the Noro striped scarf by Jared Flood?! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and now I have a chance to knit it. I am excited about how my scarf will turn out.

Here is the second colorway. I hope the two colorways complement each other in the scarf. I think that is the beauty of the yarn.

It is worth noting that I bought this yarn in July 2010 and I finally met it yesterday. For the curious cats who are wondering why the delay, I shipped it to a dear friend in the US and he brought it for me into India during his recent visit. Thank you, Lancie for the help.

Even my Hubster thinks that I have gone bonkers seeing the way I was gushing over the yarn. Don't the colors look cheerful to you?! I am thinking of making the below picture my desktop background. Good idea?!
So, what is your most recent yarn purchase that you are tickled about? Share with me in the comments. I would love to hear from you.
