  1. That's a cute pattern. Looks like it probably works up pretty quickly. You could make some for EVERY outfit you have. :-)

  2. Just lovely Nancy. The red pops in the picture. Someone's going to be nice and fashionably warm

  3. Thanks for the link! Those are lovely. Maybe I can get some done this winter.

  4. Oh, they look like they would be cozy during our WINDY and cold days! Nice!!

  5. They look so warm. Everyone needs one--or two--or three! Also, I really need to get rid of a lot of leftovers and this is the perfect project for it.

  6. I love those! How loose do they fit around your neck?

  7. They look great. I sure hope I don't need anything like that this winter!

  8. Thanks for the link, Nancy! Neat that you made some with re-cycled yarn. Do you wash it to get the kinks out?


I love comments!
