Spotlight: Louisa Harding Noema

What comes to mind when you think of spring?

IMG_3483I like how the landscape comes alive with early flowers, such as crocus, hyacinth, tulips, and daffodils. They bring color to an otherwise blah landscape.

Yarn Garden NoemaNoema, a new yarn from Louisa Harding, is substituting for the flower at the moment.

I shamelessly borrowed that picture from Yarn Garden, a local yarn store in New Hampshire. I’m sure they’d be happy to take a phone order!

This picture shows off the lovely riot of colors and textures that is Noema.

This new yarn is a multi-plied, multi-colored cotton blend that comes in 131 yard balls and has a suggested gauge of 5 sts/inch.

Louisa has designed a book of 14 patterns to help you add color to your personal landscape.

AzurineThe Azurine cardigan is show in two different lengths and sleeve styles. The shading in this version is accomplished by using two colors.

BettineIf flashy red isn’t your style, there are more mellow colors available. The blue used in this version of the Bettine pullover reminds me of the ocean. The openwork design is great for warm weather and adds visual interest.

PashaThe Pasha cardigan really shows off the colors. I like the interesting construction on this one.

NadiaFor a small project, consider the Nadia shrug. It takes just two balls of Noema yarn. Shrugs pair nicely with summer dresses since they keep your shoulders warm when the nights get cool.

I’ve highlighted just a few of the patterns in Louisa Harding book #135-Noema. You can preview the rest of them on our main website.

In addition to Yarn Garden, Yarns Unlimited in Pennsylvania, and Cityknits in the UK have all posted pictures of their Noema stock on Facebook.
