That's what I've decided to call my neck ruff/warmer, pseudo scarflette, something-or-other:
The color is much truer in the second photo. This is "Peach Tree" Malabrigo (worsted) and I have 3 skeins of it. Enough to finish this neckwarmer, make a matching hat and a pair of mittens. I started out with the idea of making Cherry Garcia so the cast on is the 8 knit/2 purl of that pattern. I did add another 20 stitches to compensate for worsted rather than bulky yarn. I twisted my first cable late, with the idea of flowey, loose cables in the back of my mind. Then I got the flow going so well that I decided that first twist was my last. I increased on the sides of the knitted panels once and I think I'll do that once again before ending the neck snugglie on a slightly ruffly note. So basically I've meandered off the beaten path of "Cherry Garcia" and am in unknown territory. However, it is only a neckwarmer....I'll try to keep my trepidation to a minimum. ;)
It should be done tomorrow. I've already tried it on (one of the joys of the magic loop method of knitting) so I do know it will fit.
I'll leave you with Colin's new hairstyle and his old friend:
Handsome boys - both of them.
