The color of this yarn reminded me of the color of Regan’s vomit from the movie The Exorcist.
Twelve stitches worked in garter, slipping the first stitch and knitting the last stitch through the back loop on a US 10 needle. This item will be donated to charity.
Care: Machine wash warm. Air dry. + Color: Olive ++ Content: man-made fiber, per burn test Weight: Bulky +++
Unlabeled, comprised of three different textures, which in my opinion, based on the color lend very much to vomit consistency. In all honest, the color could be denoted as gold, which I was not my first association. This latter association only dawned on me, using gold aluminum knitting needles. To seal the gold fate, I remember trying to find gold in Adobe Photoshop, favoring a darker yellow to an pale orange.
I keep seeing World Wide Knit In Pubic Day notices in my Facebook newsfeed and I fee slighted that while the event claims to be all-inclusive – meaning other fiber crafts – that specific intent is not communicated in the title. If they are claiming to be all-inclusive why not change the title to World Wide Fiber Craft Day?
To that end, and as an original hooker – both ways – I can’t tolerate being dissed, slighted, so I have contact WWKIPD and the Crochet Guild of America inquiring on how to establish a World Wide Crochet In Public Day.
I would like to know how one person organized a world wide event because my ego demands that I leave something behind to mark my existence in this world before I am dust.
Seriously, while I do knit, I was originally a hooker – both kinds – and I always feel slighted when Knit events do not include the word Crochet as well, but “don’t mind crocheters in public.”
I am copying the Crochet Guild of America regarding this inquiry, but had to fill out a webform so their email is not present.
The way the gradient is hidden, but it is there equals strange magic.
About Strange Magic
I had started a previous item in a similar manner, but decided to 🐸 it and use that yarn in a project in hibernation. The technique I am using is similar to brioche, but horizontal. The first experiment began with knit cast on. Row 2 is worked knit in the same direction as the cast on, by sliding the fabric to the other side of a set of circular needles. Fabric is then turned and worked in the same manner. In short Knit/Knit.
For Strange Magic, I once again used two colors, but this time it did a Knit/Purl. Guess what? They look the same to me. I think I am in the area of illusion knitting because the gradient on yarn 1 is kinda hidden between the rows, yet still shows itself, depending on which angle you are viewing Strange Magic from.
The fabric is very slinky. If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d add a pink fur border on both sides. Oh stop! :D
I believe it was a random selection from which I received a “feeling” that kind of match my passion for the colors in this yarn. Based on that “feeling,” Desire was ignited.
As I previously stated, I’ve heard many knitters express their passion for knit linen stitch and then turn around and complain about the slow progress of the stitch due to slipping every over stitch.
As a continental knitter, the slipping back and forth did not not bother me and I think because I am in learning mode and was working through some major family drama, I was set in knit mode during the last three days. I too <3 love the knit linen stitch, and I find the purl side extremely appealing for it’s texture.

I’ve always liked Noro. This is my first all Noro project and I am loving it. The other day, I put the scarf around my neck and I instantly felt cozy. At that moment, Desire became mine. Because of the content, I was able to join one skein to the other with a little water and hand twisting. And the colors blend so well.
Having finished Hey, Saint Peter yesterday, I was in a pinch to have something to work on at my guild meeting, in addition to packing gift for Miss Fox. I grabbed the last two skeins from that bin I’ve been telling you about – Yes, now empty! Bells! Whistles! :D – and pretty much was out the door for my eight-dollar Uber.
At the guild, I looked up the knit stitch – keeping in line with my learning theme – I’d never stitched the linen stitch. I’d heard that it can be tedious and slow-going. I cast on at the guild yesterday and did a few rows when I got home. I am happy with my progress and don’t mind the back and forth, which I may account for the tedious comments.
The funny thing for me is that no matter how loose I knit – and believe me I am “trying” because I feel like my tension is so loose – the fabric is even and snug. <3 <3 <3
Desire – artist to be revealed in final post – was another random play choice from my music library. It’s such a passionate song – and under the right influence, an anthem – that the passion matches my pleasure at the fabric that this Noro yarn will create. I chose the word ignition over cast on because desire is ignited.
At least I think it’s Noro. I could’ve sworn I saw one label, but I don’t see it handy right now and I don’t want to have to make corrections to this post, so let’s leave it for further clarification, okay?
