Noro Question

My wonderful SP sent me 2 skeins of Noro. It's not quite enough to do a full sized booga so I was thinking of other things to do with 2 skeins.

Since it gets incredibly cold out here at night I was thinking of a scarf. But which pattern? I want something that shows the beautiful colors and that will only use 2 skeins. Any other ideas?

Yes, it does get cold - hello! - 32 tonight for the low and then WAY up to the mid 70's tomorrow. It's a little confusing for the body. I start out at 5 a.m. all bundled up and stripped down to shorts by 1030....at least on the weekends. I'm learning all about layers during the week. My 2 1/2 years here in CA have made me weak. I used to laugh at that low temp - heck, in PA, 32 was a high temp somedays. I used to shovel snow in a t-shirt.

I also have had something wonderful happen to me, but I'm not ready to share yet!

Karen's multidirectional scarf is a good one for a couple of skeins of Noro.

I agree with Maureen, the MDS is really good for Noro. I've done it twice. I also find that washing Noro just at ouch to only slightly felt it makes for a wonderfully soft scarf.
