Neckwarmers!

So this morning I started a neckwarmer for my friend to swap for some yarn.  I started using this hand dyed alpaca I had, but it was really light weight and I doubled two different colors which was really pretty (I’ll post a picture later), but it’s not bulky enough for Boston winters (when she comes to visit me).  So- I went to Windsor Button and got some stuff!

This is the pattern I started working from.  Or I should say I thought about.

Here’s the picture.  I just love the buttons!  So cute!  But I didn’t like that you knit it like a scarf, so this morning I thought I’d be smart and knit it from the top down.  It’s very pretty, but it’s more like a summer neckwarmer. 

So my shopping trip turned out this:

Baby Alpaca yarn!!  Perfect for winter and GREEN- so you know she’ll love it!  I also bought awesome buttons. and boring old tapestry needles.  Pictured is also my stapler and work desk.

If you can’t see the color that well (it’s Olive)

But of course- now I’m not sure about the pattern and about my needle seize (9). 

 Gee golly
