Eisaku Noro, you are an evil, evil man. How dare you make such beautiful things possible, knowing we lowly knitters will be unable to resist them.
I am completely and hopelessly addicted to my Stripy Kureyon Scarf. I started knitting it at about 11 PM last night, and as of 4 PM today, it's already 28" long. I can't put the damn thing down, I keep wanting to see what colors come out of the skein next (the element of surprise being heightened by using a center-pull ball).
Kureyon is kind of notorious for being scratchy, but I soaked it for a bit (how-to here) and it's now quite a bit better. It's also softening noticeably as I knit it, and hopefully it will continue to improve with wear.
I'm using one ball each of #213 and #207. Pre-knitting shot:
#213 is the purple/green/orange skein and #207 is the blue/green one.
