I sure hope you see this! Use the “message” button on Facebook to contact me so I can verify your name when you claim your prize.
Projects made with Noro yarns are works of art you can wear and use.
Even simple, drop shoulder, stockinette stitch sweaters look fabulous because of the stunning colors Eisaku Noro creates.
When we flip through pattern books our main focus is on the projects pictured. The questions going through our minds are “What yarn was used? Which color of that yarn? What stitches and shaping are involved?”
The people in the book are just there to hold up the garment for us. If we pay attention to them at all it’s probably just to register their smiling faces and be jealous that they are already wearing the sweater that we want to make.
But maybe you pay more attention than that. Maybe as you flip through the book again, or look at the pictures as you’re knitting or crocheting the sweater, you study the people as well.
Maybe you start to notice that the same male model has appeared in the last 10 Noro pattern pamphlets (Volumes 21 through 31) when a men’s sweater is shown.
Maybe you’re up for a little challenge for a chance to win some Noro yarn? (void where prohibited. US residents.)
Here’s the game:
Look through the Noro book previews on our website and find this man! I will give you a hint: look in Volumes 21 through 31.
Leave a comment with the book Volume Number AND Design number where you see him.
There are two prize levels:
10 people who identify at least one book and design will be randomly selected to receive a skein of Noro yarn and a booklet.
1 person who finds him in all four booklets in which he appears (8 times total) and names all the booklets and designs will be randomly selected to receive a bag of 10 skeins of Noro yarn and a booklet.
Got that? 11 prizes total.
You have between now (July 31) and Friday (Aug 3) to post your answer. When the system challenges you for authentication remember to enter your real email address so I can contact you if you win. Winners will be selected and announced on Saturday (Aug 4)
