So I finally went to a LYS in my area, but due to being a college student, I only purchased one ball of Noro. The yarn it as home, so I can't tell you what color. But what can you do with one ball of Noro that will show off it's gorgeous colors??!! I'm at a loss but really love this yarn and do not have enough money to get another ball of it!

Maybe a hat or a scarf?

I made a little make up pouch for my mom, but that was knit.  If you make a little purse in the round, as opposed to flat, the color changes work up nicely.

I made an envelope style purse with most of a ball of Noro and then felted it.  It came out nicely and the colors show up great.

There was a post a while ago by a Craftster who made the Garden Scarf from the Happy Hooker with Noro Silk Garden.  I looked up the post, but the photo was gone.  Anyway, the color changes in the Noro made the flowers in the scarf look AMAZING!!  She said she used 1 1/2 skeins of yarn, but I'm sure you could make it shorter and it would still work.  Or, incorporate a solid color to stretch the Noro.
