No, No, Noro

I'm making another pair of mittens and this time I'm using Noro Yarn. 

I love/hate Noro Yarn. I love it's vibrant colors but I hate the way the color changes do not always match from one skein to the next and the way they just patch in any old color that's handy when there is a break in the middle of the skein.  People like me like their mittens or socks to match, and it's almost impossible to make that happen with Noro Yarn. Sometimes in order to make it happen one must pull the entire skein apart to find the color that one needs......

What a pain....but the mittens are going to be beautiful!
