Noro Silk Garden
What was your inspiration?
I saw a sample of this at Stitches West and tried it on. I thought it would be interesting to do it with a multi-color yarn.
What are you most proud of?
This was a really fun project to knit with Noro because it is not boring. The colors kept changing. I even arranged it so that the two sleeves match!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
The instructions for beginning this project and the diagram on the pattern are not that easy to comprehend. Basically you do a provisional cast on and knit only one ONE needle back and forth until you can do the armhole cast on. The armhole cast on attaches to the stitches on hold for the provisional cast on.
