Here are the latest additions to the yarn shelves at The Rookery- Kureyon 100% wool by Noro. This stuff is gorgeous! I love the color combinations found in Japanese yarns. Diakieto is another that simply makes me drool. Not many commercial yarns inspire me like these... Gotta put Japan on my list of top 5 places to visit. New Zealand is #1, though I think I'd actually like to live there rather than just visit. Everything I've encountered from New Zealand ( people, photos, films, fibers, my spinning wheel, old coins, etc.) really strike a chord in me. Japan tempts me also with its animation, street fashion, sushi and attention to detail. I wonder if I could pimp my handspun on the streets of Tokyo?
