FO: Neckwarmer by Drops 116-10
Hi!
My 2 days of longer train rides got me to make and finish the neckwarmer by drops that I wanted to make for a while.

It feels a little wide and I might want to to make the top ribbing again and smaller. But I will see in a few days.

Here is the original pattern:
http://garnstudio.com/lang/de/visopp..._id=10&lang=de

I will make the wristwarmers, too. But not today.

Here are the pics for you:









I am proud that I made it to catch all the strands in the back in such a regular pattern. I had not done much stranding work for a while until I got to the Spongebob pullover and feel accomplished that I made this and worked so smoothly and quickly.

Since I knit this in public on the train you can imagine how many people I met that wanted to discuss the pattern, the multicolor knitting and the general fact of knitting and all the rest. It was entertaining.

My blog holds the pics, too.http://hyperactiveknitting.blogspot....ps-116-10.html

Hey girls!
Thank you very much for your praise and support.

Since all my research has not brought me to any video showing my stranding technique I am considering to make a video about that myself. I will let you know when I finally bite the bullet.
