I had not purchased new yarn in a yarn shop in over two months.
I went in to the local yarn shop to buy a soft wool yarn (one skein) to make a hat for my husband.
Noro makes my favorite yarns. The colors are to die for.
I want to make a hat for myself out of a Noro yarn. It cost $20 for one skein (160 meters).
I really, really want a Noro sweater. Today while online I figued out that Noro sells patterns. However to make a sweater with new Noro yarn will cost me $140-$200 in yarn alone.
I feel as if I've been tortured.
Do people really spend over $100 on skeins of yarn to make one sweater?
I think I have been spoiled by the prices of factory made sweaters sold in stores.
If you don't know what the Noro yarns look like here is a link to a site selling books of patterns. By clicking on each book you can see numerous photos of projects made with these Noro yarns.
I have been using "World of Nature" Kureyon, I just bought some Iro and Kochoran.
