I did some Ravelry investigation to see what I could knit up with one skein of my Noro Taiyo. I love Ravelry for that! There were quite a few choices. I knew I wanted some scarf/shawl sort of thing. The yarn was so soft it needed to be next to my neck. I started one shawl and it was too complicated to follow. I wasn't looking for that much intensity at the moment. So I started Wingspan. What a fun little pattern! Very simple. And it worked well with the Noro color changes.
It stays on my neck nicely - it could use a little shawl pin to fasten it though.
I could have made it bigger but it was the type of scarf that didn't need to be very long. It actually looked a bit better being shorter.
I would probably knit it again in a different color. I love that it was done in a few days. And no blocking necessary! Speaking of blocking, Pei has an appointment with the blocking needles tonight. I think I have a way for it to block and not be touched by the four legged creatures in my house.
