Just to let you know that I finished the neck warmer!
I finished it a while ago and forgot to tell you.
For those of you who do not know, I bought the most beautiful long scarf from MrsGKnits who has a shop on Folksy. (clickable link above) I had been wanting it for such a long time and when she had a sale I pounced on it. When it arrived it was even nicer in real life but so loooooong it dragged on the floor. When I wrapped it around my neck I nearly drowned in wool!
So, I unpicked some of it and re-attached the fringes and all was well. But - I had a big ball of gorgeous wool which I did not want to waste.
Hence the Scarflette purchased from http://www.misi.co.uk/gifts/60868/Super_quick_knit_Neckwarmer_with_Giant_Bobble_Buttons.html.
The patterns are PDF and so there is no waiting for the post. Also, there is a special offer of buy one get one free (I think the offer is still on, check her page to make sure)
I have cheated and sewn the scarf together and will add some fab wooden buttons I have. It just goes over my head and is so cosy under my coat.
I am feeling very sorry for myself today as I have a heavy cold so I may be sitting indoors wearing a think jumper and my new scarf!
