Neck warmer express

This morning, I woke up with that CSI victim look that made it clear to me that I was going to call sick. I can't put my finger on the problem but my body couldn't go through another day at the office. I felt exhausted but luckily I have paid sick days. My plan was to sleep and to make sure that I was in good shape for the weekend. However, I kept thinking about that pretty neck warmer. I already had the wool and the needles. Crazy how the time flies when you are in a "craft trance". Next thing I know, I didn't rest at all but I have a new neck warmer that looks lovely with my tweed coat!

On a day like that, there is nothing else to do than what you did....Once in a while we definitely have to listen to our bodies!! But I think too many people ignore it...

How great that you made the neckwarmer - I always get energy from knitting, sewing or something else creative...I hope you had that feeling too.

It turned out beautifully....Love your coat, by the way :0)

I love the red, it's beautiful. I managed to complete one on sunday also, and I love it.

Do you have a pattern for this? I am new to all things crafty and would like to try this...unless it isn't for the faint of heart. Please let me know.

I like that tweed coat very much (all tweed anyway) and the red is going very well with it. By the way, I love your great sense of humour. Nearly all your posts make me laugh! :D
But I haven't been here for a little while now. Shame on me! I'll change that. Promised.
