I blocked out the neckwarmer on Saturday, and now it’s finished except for buttons.

I’m sorry to say, I don’t know how much use I’m going to get out of it.

It’s beautiful, for sure.  And warm, and even – dare I say – elegant.

But in truth it’s meant to be worn by someone with a nice long, swanlike neck.

And unfortunately, my neck is more …

…ducklike.  At best.

No, really.  See?

Deprived of room to stretch, it just sort of collapses onto itself.


Nonetheless, I met my goals:  I learned how to knit colorwork, I steeked, and it was made, start to finish, within the Olympic span.

So, mission accomplished.
