Wingspan, Part I

I have two skeins of Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn that absolutely refuse to become socks. They pool, they gap, they otherwise cry and carry on in all sorts of ways. So, they are becoming Wingspans instead. I finished the first one last night, and cast on the second one this morning. They are, indeed, a pleasurable and addictive knit!

Wingspan is so totally cool! The link to Ravelry shows some amazing variations--what an excellent use of sock yarn, especially if it seems unwilling to become socks. Both colorways look great.

This is a great pattern, and very inspiring. How did you happen upon it?

Lately I have been checking out the popular patterns on the Ravelry site (go to Ravelry -Patterns, then see the "Hot Right Now" section). Wingspan has been in the top 10 for some time, so it caught my attention there. When the yarn refused to be socks, I knew it was a done deal!
