Noro yarns do improve with washing.
The colours are either faaaaaaabulous or WTF?!?!!!
Knitting with the yarn is not a fun experience (the nasty feel, the thick and thin, the knots -- with massive breaks in the colour sequence). But the socks, after a washing or two, are wonderful. I have 2 pair of Kuryeon and one of Silk Garden and I love them. But I don't know why I insist on making more...
Glad to hear that it improves with washing. There was only 1 knot in this one - and it ended up on the tail I'll be using to graft the toes. The unevenness is what got me - this isn't cheap yarn! I expect a little bit more...consistancy with the pricey stuff than I do with the cheap stuff.
The colors on this ball are definately in the WTF camp! I mean, I LIKE bright socks. Loud doesn't bother me....but these? Are neither loud nor bright. They're......odd.
I have a ball of Kuryeon to try.....it'll be a while. I need to get over the icky-ness of this pair, first. :lol:
