FO Moondance Wingspan
I just attached the tassels to the points and wove in the ends. My lovely niece picked out the yarn, it is knit in Lily Sugar'n Cream in the color 'Moondance'. DN's passion is photography so needless to say I am looking forward to a picture of her modeling this.

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

Nice Wingspan
Like your neat addition to Wingspan. I made one last winter and can't come up with a good way to wear it. Most of the pics on Ravelry show it flat on a surface and when I try wrapping it around my neck it just looks goofy. Just wondering whether you've made more than this one and how do you wear it.

@JC - I haven't actually tried it on yet. I have another one that I need to weave the ends in on and still need to decide whether or not to add tassels to the tips. I thought I would try it on, overlapping the ends, using my knitting needles to secure it. I'm thinking a shawl pin might work nicely, though.

So here it is. I used a dpn to hold it closed so it could be shown. I am realizing that I should pick up a shawl pin for this before I send it to my niece, so I am glad that you mentioned this JC. Thanks
