This is my friend’s new christmas present. She is featured here modelling with her new neckwarmer. She is also quite a good artist/craftster, you can see her here with a painting she created about 8 years ago. The neckwarmer was a fairly quick knit, but had just enough pizazz to keep my interest peaked. I love the elegant stylings and how well she wears it. The pattern is Flora from Knitty.com. I used two different colors – abeige Kyoto yarn from Artfibers that has been in my stash for about 6 months that I have been dying to use, coupled with the blue shimmery Filandia yarn from my June 4th update that I bought at the Yarn Lady Sale.
