My super-fabulous cashmere neckwarmer!!
So I got an e-mail update that Flying Fingers was selling off some last random yarn at really good sale prices and found this Karabella Supercashmere for almost 75% off. I am going through a serious purple kick right now too so I had to have it. I bought 2 balls and after searching around for something that I would have enough yarn to knit and would allow me to enjoy the softness I settled on this.

I totally love it!! Its sooo warm and soft which is great because it hit -34 here with windchill the other day. I can wear it under or over my coat depending on how I button it and how warm I need to be that day. I'm not 100% happy with the bind off but I already pulled it out once and was too cold on my commutes to do it again. Its not that noticeable though and I may block it a bit more to see if I can smooth it out.

That's cute, and I love the buttons you chose to go with it.

Warm is the name of the game right now.

That is great. Is that made by the pattern for the heringbone neckwarmer? That is one I have on my list.
Warm is the way to go.
-34 ??? where do you live?

That turned out very well! I understand the purple thing, one of my daughters (grown) had it good. A fortunate find on the cashmere yarn, will feel very nice around the neck.

Here's the link:

Love it, it's gorgeous! Where do you live that it's that cold!?

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
