Festive Colour

Christmas is approaching faster than the Polar Bear Express and if you are like many knitters, its down to the crunch with a few more rows to knit, a handful of stitches to cast off, and ends to sew in.  Then its time to relax and enjoy the festive season in all its radiance and splendor.  The dazzling light displays in the neighbourhood, and beautifully decorated trees with big shiny ornaments are only here once a year. 

Nobody holds a paintbrush to wool quite like NORO does, the unrivaled champion of colour in bright and cheery rainbow hues.  Embrace the spirit of the season with a simple basketweave scarf knit in Kureyon by Noro.

    Great pattern idea, it does look festive and would go with just about any colour winter coat. There is nothing better than Noro!
