Taiyo Gaia
Gaia Shoulder Hug (Axelvärmare) by Anne Carroll Gilmour
Needle and yarn
US 7 - 4.5 mm
Noro Taiyo Sock
1 skein = 459.0 yards (419.7 meters), 100 grams
Knit New Haven in New Haven, Connecticut
March 2011

5/11 Done, used every last inch of the skein, and then some for a picot bind off. Love it.

3/11 This yarn is frustrating to knit, it acts like an energized single, curling back on itself. I’m needing to stop knitting to untangle it every few minutes. Annoying! But, it’s those Noro colors looking good. So I forgive it.

Heeding my own advice from my last Gaia, I’m using Taiyo with almost 100 yards more than a single skein of Silk Garden and larger needles.Should be larger and flowier-or at least that’s my dream.
