I was doing this one at work, and one of my friends there asked me what the yarn was. So I told her it was a mix of mohair and silk and wool. But she was giving it a very interested look, so I mentioned it was called Noro. "Oh, Noro Silk Garden!" she said straight away. "I made a jumper out of that one year." And she launched into a conversation about good yarn shops and where you could get good stuff, and the grumpy lady at the nearest LYS (in Mair St).
Funny. I've known her for years, and I had no idea she loved knitting, too. Ü
Knit in public, people!
