Stash Addition: Noro Sekku

My daughter and I spent Black Friday visiting Hillsborough, NC. I'd heard good things about the yarn shop there, Hillsborough Yarn Shop. It's a cozy little store that only stocks natural fibers. I always try to make a purchase when I visit a new shop, even if it's just a pattern leaflet or a ball of yarn. I bought 2 skeins of Noro Sekku in color 1 -- yellow, orange, lime green, brown, and shades of purple. It's a lace weight made of cotton, wool, nylon and silk that knits up on size 2 needles. Not sure what I'll make, but since I have 840 meters, probably a shawlette. It seems an appropriate weight for warmer weather wear. Guess I'll check Ravelry and see what others are making out of this yarn.
