My 2 days of longer train rides got me to make and finish the neckwarmer by drops that I wanted to make for a while.
It feels a little wide and I might want to to make the top ribbing again and smaller. But I will see in a few days.
Here is the original pattern:
I will make the wristwarmers, too. But not today.
Here are the pics for you:
I am proud that I made it to catch all the strands in the back in such a regular pattern. I had not done much stranding work for a while until I got to the Spongebob pullover and feel accomplished that I made this and worked so smoothly and quickly.
Since I knit this in public on the train you can imagine how many people I met that wanted to discuss the pattern, the multicolor knitting and the general fact of knitting and all the rest. It was entertaining.
My blog holds the pics, too.http://hyperactiveknitting.blogspot.com/2010/09/neckwarmer-drops-116-10.html
