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).
