Neck Warmer

Last Friday I stopped at my LYS (local yarn store) to buy something to make the Herringbone Neck Warmer.  They don’t carry Malabrigio so I bought something else.

Araucania yarn

The red one didn’t have the depth of color I wanted but I didn’t know that until I took the hank apart to roll into a ball.  (side note: I don’t have a ball winder.  I prefer to do that myself.  Really.)  The red was dull.  Anyway, I put it back into the twisted configuration as I intend to exchange this for something else.  It was a little too pricy to keep in my stash.

I love the blues, purples, and greens in the other hank and the Herringbone stitch is beautiful.  And dense.  Eventually I will be able to knit it without saying the directions aloud.

One thing I haven’t figured out is how to correct a mistake using this stitch.  This stitch involves slipped stitches and psso (pass the slipped stitch over) and I’ve ripped this back many times…like about nine times.  I have 24 rows knit (about four inches) and I know I made a mistake way back around row 6.  I knew it as I was knitting that row.  It adds character.  Besides this is for me and I’m ok with some character.

If there’s enough light when I get home, I will show you my progress.

  1. Both colors lookl nice to me, but I haven’t seen them in person. I like the blue and purple, but I’m not crazy about the green. You like green – stick with that.
