The Fall/Winter 2013 issue of Noro Knitting Magazine is now available!
If you have an iPad or iPhone you can get a digital version through our KFI app. (Sorry Android users, no app for you. It’s much more complicated to build one.)
Yesterday the print version started landing on the doorsteps of local yarn stores across the USA.
You know what a new issue of Noro Knitting Magazine means?
Right, your to-make list is going to explode. But aside from that?
It’s time for a giveaway to celebrate!
Pin It To Win It
I’m trying something new this time to spread around your chances to win. Yesterday we did a giveaway that was contained to our Facebook page, but I know not everyone is on there.
Today I’m giving our fans on Pinterest a chance to show their Noro yarn love with one of those “Pin it to win it” contests. Edited: You don’t have to join Pinterest to enter. You can just leave a comment here on the blog.
Goodness, you can’t read that text at all! I’m going to have to fix that. In the mean time, here are the rules:
Three (3) fans will each receive a copy of the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of Noro Knitting Magazine
1. Follow Knitting Fever on Pinterest
2. Create a new board named “Noro Knitting Magazine”
3. Pin your favorite projects from the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of Noro Knitting Magazine on the Knitting Fever website
4. Use the hashtag #NoroKnittingMagFW13
5. You can also pin other projects you love that use Noro Yarns

Comment for an Entry
If you aren’t on Facebook OR Pinterest–fear not! You didn’t think I’d leave you out, did you? Three of our lovely blog readers will also be selected to receive a copy of the new issue.
Simply leave a comment telling me which project from the Fall/Winter 2013 issue (follow that link to preview it) would top your to-make list. I’ll select three random comments on Nov 4.
US Residents only. Void were prohibited.
I’ll get the ball rolling with two of my favorites.
This cabled coat was the first project to catch my eye. I like the happy shade of Noro Obi that is shown in the magazine, but if those bright colors are to your taste Obi comes in 8 shades. The collar is knit using Debbie Bliss Paloma, a soft Baby Alpaca/Merino blend that is available in 44 shades.
The big buttons are also fun, and are spot on for current fashion trends.
Another project that caught my eye was the Lacy Motif Shawl. Noro Magazine (and the Noro pattern books in general) has always been good about including a mix of both knitting and crocheting patterns.
I like the interesting textures in this shawl provided by the mesh sections combined with the motifs and the fringe. It is crocheted using Noro Kirara, a Wool/Cotton/Silk/Angora blend available in 8 colors.
