FO: Neck Thingy

Timeline: started 06.23.2008; finished 07.13.2008

Well, I'm not sure what to say about this one. It took forever for me to get a decent photograph that showed the colors of this yarn accurately, so that was the only delay in my posting about it.

Modeled by Saffron.
As for changes, I used much thinner yarn than the pattern called for because that's what I had on hand and I've been wanting a little scarf. I put in buttonholes, but decided not to add buttons, since it looks fine tied. The pattern was easy to memorize and I really like the stitch pattern. It ended up pretty narrow, so I gave it a really hard blocking, which opened the pattern up a bit and gave me a bit more width. The yarn was just OK. I loved watching for the color changes, but it isn't the softest stuff in the world. It might be nice for a hat, though.

I'm not sure where this will end up living. It isn't really "me", although I do really like it. I'll probably ask if any of my friends want it.
