A couple of weeks ago, I was contemplating what I was going to knit now that all the wedding crazy was over.  I had a skein of handspun merino/silk from Into the Whirled that was super squishy and worsted weight so I started thinking cowl…then I looked in the mirror and was reminded of my curly girl status and what cowls DO to curls and started thinking neck warmer with buttons.

A quick search on Ravelry found me perusing the Herringbone Neck Warmer pattern – I had the yarn, the needles and the desire for a warm neck so I cast on!  A week and a half later…

Herringbone Neck Warmer

…I had a warm neck!

Project Details:

Pattern Name: Herringbone Neck Warmer

Needles: Size 10 Knitpicks Options

Yarn: Handspun – Into the Whirled merino/silk in the Suffolk colorway

Time to knit: About a week – I had other stuff going on so I couldn’t just sit and knit

Notes and Mods: This is a cool stitch pattern that keeps it from feeling like you are ‘just knitting a scarf’ – it kept me happy!  My yarn was more worsted than bulky so I went down a needle size and knit 40 stitches across instead of 30.

In other news, sorry for the radio silence this week!  I’ve been sewing my butt off getting bags ready for Amy of Spunky Eclectic to have in her booth at THE New England Fiber Festival in Springfield this weekend (Booth #500-501 if you want to find it – you should visit if you haven’t already enjoyed her fiber and yarn, it’s is teh ossum) and dealing with COBRA stuff for R since that’s all messed up now that he’s made an honest woman of me.  We will be at the fiber fest on Saturday and I’ll be wearing my Twist – maybe we’ll see you there!

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
