I used Noro Kureyon to make a throw for a birthday gift for my sister. The colors are vibrant and help create a patchwork effect. I love the way knitting with Noro surprises you...you can't really know what it will look like until it's finished and no two items will ever look the same.

I have always disliked Kureon but broke down because of this color #40. It will be a scarf worn under coat collar.Kureon feels as tho it has straw mixed in. Now on to one other Noro, Taiyo..NO straw! I am using it to make the popular Lizard Ridge Afghan..fun colors, soft interesting to knit up, Now who would like to use Kureon as an afghan, torture! Just say'in

        Comments about Noro Kureyon:

        Had always wanted to try the Noro -- got a gift certificate for my yarn shop. and bought some. I used it for a scarf -- it knits in stripes, which was good to know. Scarves, fine -- other projects, maybe not. It knitted well -- but was overall a bit rough. I have been using a lot of merino,which is softer . . . I think scarves should be soft and cuddly . . .

        But -- I certainly do plan to make some other projects with Noro Kureyon.

        Comments about Noro Kureyon:

        I bought Kureyon for a sweater project. It knitted up on a 10 instead of a 9 so I had to make adjustments. But I love the dyed look which will add so much to my project. Now I am going to try some other Noro yarns!

        Comments about Noro Kureyon:

        I love the rich saturated colours in unusual, wonderful combinations. The one thing I don't like is there are often knots that bring SUDDEN colour changes. Great for projects that capitalise on the long colour changes.

          A little thicker yarn than I had hoped, but still used it for the pattern I had in mind. I loved the way the colors changed and it worked out very nicely. Will purchase it again at some point, but need to finish other projects first.
