All of us at the shop are a little obsessed with the spectacle of colors in Noro Silk Garden. With the different fibres in this yarn, the light picks up the slubs and color changes magnificently. We’re of the opinion that this yarn doesn’t need any fancy stitches to show off its beauty. So when Arthella began knitting these “Orbits,” you almost couldn’t tell it was yarn! These simple loops are all the Silk Garden needs to show off its jewel-like qualities. Just one skein makes a whole group of these — a casual but beautiful accessory that will have people asking where you got your necklace!
