With the Holiday season fast approaching, everyone at the store is making lists of all the gifts we want to knit. Nothing makes a lovelier present than a cozy hand knit item, but with so many people on our lists, it's essential to find small special projects that are easy and quick to knit. No matter what age, everyone loves a nice warm scarf, (perhaps with a matching hat or pair of mittens if the recipient made Santa's nice list). To make these quick gifts extra special we like to use bright interesting yarns. A perfect choice are the yarns of Noro from Japan. Made of bright tufts of natural fibers like wool, angora, cashmere and silk that are spun together to create beautiful waves of colour once they are knit, these yarns will jazz up any small project. With Noro, simple scarves and hats will look anything but simple.These projects are all made with Kureyon, but can also be knit in Silk Garden or Silver Thaw. All three are available in-store in a wide range of colour combinations.
