Taiyo, I'm Your's

Hi Knitters,
I am so excited about this new scarf design. Have you knitted with Noro's Taiyo? I may have been living under a rock to have missed this yarn but I was not familiar with it. I grabbed a couple of balls at Loop Yarn Shop in Milwaukee. It is the best colorway I have ever seen, that's what drew me in. It is color #1 and it has black, tan, chocolate, rosy pink and dusty pink and a bit of olive and gray. It is gorgeous, beyond. The yarn is 40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% wool, and 15% nylon. Taiyo is squishy and soft, not at all scratchy. This is my new favorite yarn, love it!

I made this reversible scarf for myself but it turned out so great that I am going to write up the pattern to share with you. I should have it available in a couple of days. If you are interested and you want to get ready, it uses 2 balls of Taiyo and a size 9 needle. I will give a lot more detail and better photos when all is set. It has so much texture and interest that I hope I can capture it all with the camera.

Okay, I'll be back soon. I have another podcast brewing in my head, too.
Take care, Knitters.
best, susie

I am almost absolutely positive that I had this very yarn - same colorway too - in my hand at the Knitting Tree just last night. I made a note of the unusual name and decided to try to think what I could do with it - it's like a soft version of kureyon. Love it - your scarf is grand!

I love Noro wool, I knit my daughter a short sleeve cardi for Christmas with it. I found it in September in This Is Knit in Dublin. The colours are amazing and it is incredibly soft and quick to knit. That scarf looks so cozy. Margie.

I love Noro and this colorway is beautiful. Can't wait to see more details on your scarf! I am working on a Silk Garden scarf presently in Yarn Harlot's One Row Pattern. Love reversible!

Happy New Year! Sandy
