Well, this was a good, fairly happy, productive year. It went by too fast! I don’t think I’ll be compiling the whole ‘list of FOs’ that I’ve seen other places (although it might actually be fun) but I do know I knit an awful lot this year! Remember Limerick, my Olympic sweater? Now there was good times.

The yarn from the end of the last post was Handmaiden 12-ply cashmere. Say it with me: yummmmmmm. I bought 2 skeins of it at the lettuce knit boxing day sale (just because I was workin’ doesn’t mean I wasn’t buyin’) and turned it into this awesome neckwarmer.

This is actually the third incarnation of the neckwarmer, but luckily third time was the charm. First two times it was too big – 64 sts on 9 mm, then 54 sts. This one is 50 sts on 8 mm and fits perfectly, nice and snug. Just alternating st st and rev st st to make it easy to scrunch.

More on new yarn and maybe even the first FO of 2007 soon to come. Party hard, and have a drink for me!

    Aw, what a good use of that stuff! Now I wish I *had* bought some at the sale instead of being so restrained!!!

    Happy new year…

    Very, very nice. Just yesterday i was riding my bike in very cold weather, and plotting my neckwarmer/cowl pattern. I need one! Yours looks *perfect*. Good scrunching idea. Happy, lucky, 2007!

    I tried a neckwarmer earlier in the year and had the same problem with it being too big — great solution and it looks nice and warm. Happy New Year!

    How pretty! I have a 2/3 complete neckwarmer on the needles, languishing in the stash because I am pretty sure it is too big, and right now I can’t bear to rip out all of that stockinette. I have the sneaking suspicion that I may rip it out and knit something else entirely with it. We’ll see when we get there, I suppose.
