So I thought about making a lace trim. Or perhaps buying some more yarn, but after visiting two stores, who both were out of that particular color I decided to unravel parts of the things I've knitted and sewing it together to make it a neckwarmer instead. And, then when my sister in law tried it on, we realized that it really should have been a little tighter. So, I unraveled it again, and started all over. Now it became the perfect neckwarmer. Knit 3, purl 3, and just keep on going on pins number 5,0mm. Very easy.
When I was scouting for more yarn I saw some other yarn, also pure wool, and definitely non-itching. My son decided on the green-purple-blue-brown-orange-pink one and my daughter wished for the white-pink-purple-grey one. And, when we went skiing there was a 6 hour drive by car, and some nights when you can't bring your serger into the apartment… So. I decided to start making a neckwarmer for my son first. He has been a bit neglected this autumn. Mainly due to the fact that my daughter outgrew all her clothes, and my son still could wear his. Now he need a new size, so I just bought a HUGE pile of fabric just for him! More about that later. Well. It knitted up pretty fast, despite small-ish needles (4,0mm) and by the second day when his balaklava (absolute necessity when it is so cold!) was a bit wet I decided to see if a beanie, helmet (and googles) and this neckwarmer would work. And it did. Actually better than the micro fleece balaclava.
Then I started on my third one for my daughter. I did't manage to finish this one when we were skiing, but I really loooove this yarn. Supersoft. I will probably buy more from this, but in other colors. It's a Merino Superwash, and I used needles 4.0mm on this one too. And here she is, posing with how to wear it. You might recognize the cat dress.
