One down, one to go...

The headband is finished. I just have to add the button. Not sure which one to choose from the collection I have. I might go with another wood button like the one I used on the sweater. Flashy wouldn't be good. Of course the girls have placed their orders for a few of their own. They will have to wait. I'm not putting Glenn's sweater off any longer. And they have LOTS of head warmer gear to keep them toasty. Trust me. They would be ready for the Ice Age.

I started the neck warmer last night and
I'm loving it! The yarn is sooooo soft and the pattern is easy. (I'm just glad I found it 50% off at the LYS.) I ended up using the size needle the pattern called for but with a longer cable, thus using the "magic loop" method. I don't have the 16" circular the pattern calls for. One day. I'm making a list you know. :) The cast on for this one was new for me (cable cast on). I ended up using a crochet hook as suggested in the tip and it made the cast on much easier. So we will see if it gets finished today. Cross your fingers. Glenn is waiting so patiently. :)

    And the neck warmer pattern is so pretty!
    Don't you just love getting wee projects done?
    I know I do.
