Completed Dandy Neckerchief

21 Mar

I think I finished this a month ago? Or something? Sometimes I am just so bad at remembering to take pictures.

The pattern is the Dandy Neckerchief and the yarn is Berroco Weekend. I am just in love with the final product; it is cozy and warm, and the color goes great with my grey winter coat – the Vaute Couture Vaute Coat. I was worried a bit before blocking because the stitch pattern was looking a little lumpy, but I squirted it with a bit of steam and it came out perfectly.

Since then I have cast on for the Gretel Tam from Stitch n’ Bitch Superstar Knitting, the latest from the Stitch n’ Bitch series. My lovely Nana was nice enough to get me the book for for Christmas.

I am using the bamboo/cotton/acrylic mix I had custom spun at Yarnia in Portland. I was worried that having so many separate strands would be annoying, but it’s really not bothersome at all. And the yarn looks so yummy!
