Noro and Mushrooms

I was finally in Kojonup last week when The Loonypin was open. Luckily for my wallet I had 3 children with me so I was in and out of there in a few minutes with just one beautiful ball of Noro sock yarn.

The warm weather has meant finally the mushrooms in the mushroom box are growing. I thought it might entice the girls to tase them. The girls are quite excited, but won't even try the ones we have picked.

I knitted a pair of Pomatomus socks with just that Noro yarn and color. The most beautiful colors I've seen. Looking forward to see your finished result.

Your mushroom kit really takes me back - my parents grew one under the stairs, but they made a bid for freedom and for a while, we could pick them direct from the cupboard. Ick!

Beautiful colours in your Noro.

The Noro sock yarn looks beautiful. You will have to let me know how it knits up. We used to have a mushroom box too and we kept it under our son's bed so he could water it and pick them when they were ready. I really must buy another one.
