On my way to Jessie’s house (4 hour drive) I finished the neckwarmer! I’m in love with it! I completely made it up as I went along, so I’m a little suprised it turned out so well. I took so many pictures of it in the car, my fiance thinks I’m nuts, and my cell phone battery died! Oops!
Here’s an action shot of the buttons and charm
Here are some shots of the front
I started in Irish Moss stitch for five rows and for the borders, then I knit in stockinette after about 7-8 rows I decreased 7 stitches and again 2 rows later. Then, I did a continuous cable for three rounds and continued on in stockinette for 3 or 4 rows. I increased right before the button hole border and created holes for easy breathing! It was so soft and snuggly that I wore it all the way up in the car! They have a pink color combination that I am thinking about making myself one in. mmmm. AND Jessie liked it!! She also gave me a scarf!!! It’s sooo pretty and the colors are constantly changing- I can’t wait until it’s cold enough to wear, but I won’t have to wait very long in Boston!
