Meeting Mr. Eisaku Noro of Noro Yarns by Kelli

What a charming, talented man,Mr. Noro! Saw him throw out the first pitch at the Mariners baseball game Tuesday night, and by amazing chance he came to talk where I work!!!  One of the only 2 places he visited. 
His first visit to USA. Speaks very little English, brought an interpreter to help answer questions about his love of color and fiber!  Did you know he tells a story with all his color ways?
Here I am, maybe a little to close, but wanting to get my Noro vest in the shot ~  Such a high-fiber life I lead!

    1. Was exciting in a room full of star struck knitters and a gracious fiber/earth loving guest from Japan~

  4. Noro is my fav yarn for socks, tho they don't often match. They last so long, partly because they felt the more you wear them. Love the vest Kelli. You are so lucky to meet the actual NORO.
