I have a love-hate relationship with Noro, any Noro, yarn. What I love about it are the absolutely brilliant colourways, and the way one colour seamlessly blends into the next. Except when the a given colour ends abruptly and the geniuses at Noro tie a new piece of yarn, in the same colourway, to the end.
In the long run, this isn't the worst thing that could happen. But it is what I've come to expect from Noro, and that is disappointing, especially since I love the bright and intense colours. But I always think twice before I make a project with Noro, unless, like this scarf, the pattern really requires it.
