Yarn Delights


As I was ordering yarn from Rosa Pomar, I came across a knit piece in her on-line shop which showed how to use Noro yarn in a more witty way. I had to give it a try right away. You have two Noro skeins and you knit a zig zag pattern and you switch the two skeins in every row. Sometimes the colors melt when they get similar. It doesn't matter. It is a part of it. Also, I have the zig zags in different size, sometimes three knit rows, sometimes four. It is more scattered that way.



The yarn is Portuguese, the gray and the brown one, the colored one is Nimbus, merino, Atelier Zitron in Germany.

I never did zig zags when I was a knitter, so your explanations got me lost a bit. But I see the yarn delight nonetheless, the texture and colors.

Andreo, u mě navlas to samé.
Radka and Casita: thank you
Francesca: zig zag pattern is those triangles, maybe I described it little confusing?

This is lovely. I really like the way the colors are striping through the zigzag. Very nice. Hope you are doing well. I am swimming in a sea of work and school papers and barely have time to do anything else. I have been doing crochet - it's a little easier than knitting and perfect to sneak in between all the chaos. Hug Dominik for me.

Beautiful yarn! I almost feel like I want to grab them out of the photos. And that zig zag pattern is so interesting! I love Noro yarns...

The zig zag pattern looks so good. I have so much yarn waiting to be knitted and it seems that I have lost my knitting vibe.But you surely got yours! I sure hope to find it again. Well, the grading is done, so I could think about knitting some time soon.
I love about everything in Rosa's shop.

I have never tried doing a zig zag pattern but it sure looks great! Those colors are very similar to what I am knitting now too, I love them!
