Itchy Nose…

I’m afraid that I am allergic to the Noro Kochoran that I am using for my sweater (Lucy Jacket from the Naturally Noro book) just like I am allergic to the Noro Kureyon yarn. I am not allergic to wool, so it must be something about the dye that they use, or maybe all the plant matter in their yarn. Really, I like picking tiny pieces of twig out of my yarn. *rolling my eyes* I knit on it too much today on it, and now I am congested and I have itchy eyes. What fun! (Ugh.)

Good thing I have, oh, I don’t know, five to ten other projects I can be working on right now!

Christine, You just bag that old nasty stuff up and send it to my house. I’ll get rid of it for you. It’s the dye. Ironic that their dying is what makes the yarn so uniquely Noro. Now go take an antihistimine.

Oh! I forgot to mention that in my post – I wore a blocked, sample Kochoran jacket for an hour with no problems at all, and my Kureyon bag stopped bothering me as soon as I felted it.

I’m trying to convince Mike to knit it for me. Then I can wear it when it is done! 🙂
