They declared this “Noro Week” and have been giving away bags of yarn!
I will give you a moment to pick yourself up from the floor since I know you just swooned.
I wonder which yarn it will be tomorrow?
Now to enter the giveaway you have to go to the Vogue Knitting Facebook page, find their post about the giveaway, and share it with your friends. It’s very simple. When you are looking at the VK status update you’ll see little blue words that say “like, comment, share.” A quick click and you’re in the running.
While it appears the giveaways are open to all their Facebook fans, people who live in Connecticut have an extra change to celebrate.
Vogue Knitting Editor Trisha Malcolm will be at a local yarn store called “A Stitch In Time” in Bethel, CT, for a trunk show this Saturday, Feb. 18, starting at noon.
She’ll be giving a preview of the spring issue of Vogue Knitting magazine and doing a book signing for the Knit Noro Accessories book.
You should call the store at (203) 748-1002 to let them know you’ll be attending so they can make sure they have enough books.
Free Noro Patterns
You can preview the books on our website so you can have a strategy before you go shopping.
But if you can’t head out to the store right now, there are a scattering of free patterns out there you can download.
First up is the Ribbed Cap available on the Vogue Knitting website. You have to set up a free ID to access it.
The pattern takes one skein of Noro Kuyeron. It is knit flat and seamed, which makes it good for beginners who aren’t ready to tackle knitting in the round. I make one last year and it was a quick and easy pattern.
Next up is a pair of Kuyeron Basic Socks on the Yarnmarket.com website. This pattern is sized for Women’s Small (Medium, Large).
Over the years many patterns on Knitty.com have featured Noro yarns. There is a wide range of garments including socks, mitts, scarves, blankets, and even a skirt!
As you can see, it’s very easy to fulfill your need for Noro!
