This is another project I started in the airport during my recent trip. I used the Dream Swatch Head Wrap pattern from the Knit and Tonic blog and my single skein of Noro Sakura . You can find the free pattern on the sidebar of her blog. The pattern is very easy to follow and make great use of a single skein of yarn. And it knits up quickly.
The yarn was interesting to knit. There are thick sections that are kind of spongy. These thick sections seem to be yarn that has been wrapped by extra fibers. These sections created an interesting texture where they appeared.
Now I just have to decide what to knit using my stashed away Sakura. I'm not opposed to a sweater or shawl. The yarn really doesn't seem scratchy or uncomfortable next to the skin.
Although, the yarn seems to be in "techno color". So I'm not sure I'd really want a sweater as brightly colored. I'll have to swatch up my remaining color and see how it is. A shawl m be a much better solution.
