Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

It isn’t difficult to mention the word colour and not conjure up images of Noro yarns dancing in your head, these two just naturally go hand in hand in the knitting world.  Now when the word lace is thrown into the mix, well…….. things just got a whole lot more interesting.
