Noro Riverbed

Hi there! Celtic Queen here with my new Noro Riverbeds. I decided that this was the next architecture I wanted to try since I had done Coriolis already and I'm trying to expand into toe up. (I'm a flap heel kind of girl.) Anyhow, when my friend Julia gifted me with this Noro, I couldn't resist. I loved the simplicity of the Riverbed. So much so, I think it's my new toe up, carry around in your head pattern. I took the master numbers, put on a 2x1 ribbing, switched out basic heel stitch for some eye of partridge and voila!

These worked out great for my wide flat feet. I'm thinking of typing up my tweaks into a pdf if anyone is interested. Hope everyone is enjoying their own creations.

Hi there, these are beautiful! I love my new Noro yarn and you are inspiring me. I am about 1/2 way through my 2nd Riverbed sock (in Panda Wool) and loving it.

Hi
Is the Noro scratchy? I haven't seen any in person.
Also how do you join this blog? I couldn't find a "join" spot.

Thanks

Oh, these are great! I just finished my first Riverbed and I'm very pleased. I have two balls of Noro in the wings (ha - pun wasn't intended) and think I see what I'm going to do with them!
