I indulged in one skein of Noro Sock at Wild Purls in Billings last month. It just didn't look like it would make good socks. The spin wasn't very tight. I decided that it would make a great scarf. It's just sideways fan and feather. I included fringe because I'm into it.
My only gripe is that I thought I was getting a pink and green skein, but there were a few knots in the skein that managed to cut out the very colors I wanted most, but I like the scarf anyway. The yarn was fun to use and I found myself knitting quickly to find out what would happen next.
