Pictures!! Ok... first the beautiful scarf. The pictures don't show it off well enough... the yarn is this great brown-based variagated coloration with burgundy, navy, moss, and teal running through it.. it will match everything I wear! It's a perfect color scheme for me, I know I won't ever take it off!
(just noticed how badly my mirror needs a dousing in windex... sorry kids)
Next up, the neckwarmer! I have never owned one of these, but when I put it on, I knew right away that it will be one of my favorite winter items. Check out the rich blue colors, and notice how they match what I'm wearing today... I love it!
(semi goofy pose to keep you guys entertained, since I know you're all jealous of my knitted treasures.)
And one more shot to show off the colors, textures, and detailing... check out the cable, ribbing, and chunky buttons on the neckwarmer... and the shaping on the bottom ends of the scarf. I know you can't see it very well, but the ends expand into kind of a square shape... and if I'm not mistaken (correct me if I am though! lol), this is a clever, clever way to solve that issue of wind sneaking through the ever-present scarf gap and attacking your neck -- the extra wide ends give more chest/throat coverage, and the corner tucks into the scarf layers... it's brilliant!
Thanks so much Sandra!!! You are the best, and I am now the warmest.
Someone teach me how to knit. (But not until after I graduate.)
