I think the size of this one is ideal.
This piece was knit in 3 days! Now how's that for a quick knit? Even I get that kind of speedy results when knitting a bulky fiber on #10 needles!! The Noro-Kogarashi yarn is soft enough to wear at the neck (and I didn't even soak or block it). I was also pleased to notice the piece softened even more as I wore it today.
There is another skein of this fiber in my basket waiting to become a pair of gloves or I had considered a hat for a suite. I spent much of the morning looking at patterns and just haven't yet seen just the gloves or hat for me yet.
We are enjoying this lovely fresh snow today and couldn't resist the chance to take a few shots while the snow blanket exist.
