Notes

So I was working away on this neck thing and really liking how it was turning out when I put it up to my neck. NOTE TO SELF: Sequined yarn and neckwear do not mix well.

So I found this really lovely colorway of Vanna’s Choice acrylic no less! and doubled the yarn and knit the whole thing. Turned out really REALLY heavy and rather like acrylic armor. So I frogged it and am using the yarn singly stranded on the US 13 needles and am really liking this result. I’ve been having fun showing it to my yarny & fibery friends and asking them to fondle it & guess what yarn it could be. NO ONE has guessed right! Still the color is not a great one for me so it will become a gift to someone else.
