a little bit of bling
my lys. The pattern calls for 1 skein of "Nuna" by MIRASOL, but I had this luscious Wenslydale yarn from Amanda of Joli House that was perfect for this project. In addition to the main yarn, you hold a strand of "Lazer FX" alongside when you knit every 6th row.
Ravelry. They are fun, fast and make great gifts, but what I really want to know is, "Do people who aren't knitters wear them?" Let me know what you think....I've got some on my list to knit as gifts and I'm wondering if they are going to be received with joy or that "ooh, how nice! (what was she thinking knitting me a neck tube)" kind of reception. You know what I mean? Sometimes I wonder if my knitting gifts are as appreciated as I hope or if they're received like that scratchy sweater your grandma knit you in bright green and orange acrylic yarn when you really wanted a curling iron......maybe that's just me.
