I suggest you print it and keep it handy to show to family members who question why you’re sitting and knitting again. heehee
Sometimes I’ll start noticing trends as I’m surfing around the internet looking for pretty pictures of projects using our yarns
This great cowl is a house pattern at Boucle Yarn Studio, a local yarn store in North Dakota. It takes five skeins of Superstar. In the version show it was 2 Silver, 2 Black, and 1 Purple. Superstar is available in 10 colors, so you can mix and match. The store has kits ready to mail out.
The Stitching Place (Facebook page), located in Wisconsin, has been on a Superstar kick!
They made this pretty version of the The Picholine Hat with two skeins.
Here’s another Superstar hat with a great flower accent on the side.
The cowl was knit using Noro Silk Garden.
Irene, the owner of The Stitching Place, shared the cowl pattern, too!

This lace cape pattern is one of my favorites. It will work up quickly on US13 and US15 needles.
My radar is probably more tuned to Noro projects than normal this week as a result of the new issue of Noro Knitting Magazine arriving as well as my weaving adventures.
Turns out it’s a popular pattern for crocheting Noro lovers!
If I have enough Silk Garden Sock left over from my woven scarf I might have to make one of these.
I’ll wrap up with this great drop stitch crochet scarf by designer Kim Guzman. She used her Waves pattern and Noro Takeuma. The scarf is just the right width to pull up the long color changes and form stripes!
What types of projects have been inspiring you this week?
