No one creates yarns like Eisaku Noro. Made from rich natural materials and employing innovative color-blending techniques with long-repeat variegation, they have been acclaimed worldwide. In 2008, Noro yarn expert Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton sat down with the artist in his native Japan to discuss his craft, his commitment to sustainability and his unwavering dedication to knitting as an art form. The result is this fully illustrated guide to using Noro yarns to best effect. Packed with color photographs and insights into the world of Noro, it features some 30 stunning projects, including hat-and-scarf sets, intricate pullovers, a richly textured shirt, and even a charming doggie vest!

I was excited for this book to arrive I love Noro!I am very disappointed with the patterns. There is only one or two things that I like ok but would not make any of them. I would strongly suggest you look at the book before purchasing it. I will be giving mine away or donating it to the library. Read full review
