Colorful "Noro" Placemats

You already know ...I looooove color.

So, when my friend Shan gave me a GC to a knitting store near me -Little Lamb and Ewe (if you are from Oregon, or are ever here in Oregon, you should go check it out...they have a great selection of beautiful yarns and a beautiful store...I had to run there and get something new and of course, yet another project to go on my bag...

This time, however, I just couldn't wait till I finished a project to start it ,till I had the perfect pattern or till it was the perfect time to start... The perfect time was now... I could hardy wait till I drove home to start it ... and all the way home, while I was driving, I caught myself glimpsing at it every time I stopped in a red light...

Gorgeous, perfection, beauty... are the only words that comes to my mind when I think about this NORO Taiyo...a mix of cotton, wool and silk ...just pure bliss...

And I decided to make round, circular, simple placemats with it...

No specific pattern , just me, my creativity and my hands working to see what will come out of it... so happy, so pure, and free...

And don't forget about my GIVEAWAY ... go check it out on my previous post ...I'll be drawing a name on May 15th ... and you could be the lucky one !!! :)

I just love crocheting and just love that I can do this... be free to create ... and share it here with you... More to come in the next few days when I get one of them completed.

Happy to be here and even happier that you stopped by to visit me ...Have a lovely week...

Isn't it just GORGEOUS ??????

And don't forget about my GIVEAWAY on my previous post...I'll be drawing a name on MAY 15th ... and YOU could be the LUCKY one ... :)

  12. gorgeous yarn! love what you made with it too-

  13. Funnily enough I was only looking at those wools yesterday and wondering which one I would choose to make a shawl that I have coveted for some time!! Also can I afford it!! I have 3 other projects on the go at the moment and have told myself that I have to finish one of those before I can buy it!! I love the colours that you have chosen and they make beautiful place mats!! I have to buy on line so can't just go to a shop and feel the texture and buy so it's really good to see them made up!
