ahem. i almost completely forgot about norovember.
That's because it's been so long since I finished my Noro shoulder tube. Here's a photo from the first day I wore it, November 8th:
Specs: Noro Silk Garden, two different colours and please don't ask me what they are, one's long since discontinued and the other, well I thought the ball bands were right here on the table next to the laptop and now they're gone. So it's a mystery. The pattern is improvised, just a tube knit from the bottom up, switching to a smaller needle after the shoulder. That little loop you see over my right shoulder is a particularly fat and blobby spit-splice that I have yet to fix somehow.
After that was finished I went digging in the storage closet for the other ball of Noro yarn I knew I had, some Kureyon I bought ages and ages ago back in Windsor. But I couldn't find it anywhere. Just as I was about to give up, I came across this Calorimetry headband, having completely forgotten that I knitted it up last winter from that very ball of Kureyon. All it needed was an end woven in and a button.
Despite my sad expression, I was very glad to have found this. Instant finished knit!

Love love love the colors of Noro. I'm less thrilled with how scratchy they are which is why I have yet to work with them. But the colors - swoon! I'll likely start with a Noro striped scarf.
