If you are like me you have way too many single skeins of the different noro yarns. I decided I had to make something out of it and I found a pattern, the woodstock duster from Interweave Crochet fall 2006 magazine. http://www.interweavecrochet.com/2006/materials_fall.asp#woodstock
and since I have to add my own flair I changed it to my completed sweater.  I just love it and I love how large the sleeves are.  I don't remember how many different skeins of yarn I used but I am thinking probably over 10 skeins of different yarns.  I even had to take a close up of the button I used, I made that when I had my kiln up and running.

Isn't Noro the bestest yarn ever! And the beuty of it, is I think all the yarns go together wonderfully!

That looks great.  I love noro too, I have about $200 worth that I am trying to knit into a blanket.  The colors just look so wonderful together.

I always am looking into the sale bins at the yarn store, anytime I find a skein I buy it. I would love to make a blanket out of Noro but would be afraid my dogs would love it too much! they have a taste for good yarns! and I mean taste they like chew up natural fibers

That is gorgeous!  I've never used Noro, but now I might be a bit more tempted...
