Wrapping it up

I did it again...was in a hurry. I took a picture of my finished project at the last minute which resulted to blurry pics in bad lighting. My model (i.e oldest daughter) was fidgety and strongly adamant that she was not to be in the I complied - after all she wasn't the focus of my attention, the neckwarmer was!!!
But the main idea is to document that I actually am working on projects and finishing them!
I'll soon get over the embarrassment of these pictures...
It's my favorite simple pattern -

CO the amount of stitches of your preference.
Row 1: k1, slip 1 wyif, repeat until end.
Row 2: Purl
Row 3: k2, *slip 1 wyif repeat from* to the end.
Row 4: Purl
Repeat these 4 rows until you reach the desired length.
Towards the end I made 2 button holes.
I have an incredible desire for short wraps around my neck. It's a turtleneck that can not only cover the bottoms of your ears but one you can unbutton and open up as well.

It's small enough to roll into your bag or when worn under a jacket can be like an unbutton collar. It's also my way to splash some color into my usual black attaire.

I set out to hunt for 2 unique buttons so while the girls were at soccer practice I ditched my walk/run around the park and slipped into CostPlus to peruse the earrings - and voila, beautiful round ornate earrings - now buttons!

I wanted to surprise this co-worker. She's my lunch partner so I rolled the neckwarmer into a pastry bag to make it look like a yummy pastry and set it on her desk.

I have just enough yarn to make myself a little somethin'-somethin'. It's the same yarn I used for my other co-worker and since the 3 of us share an office it'll be a symbolic gesture of department unification - ok, ok, ok an adult friendship bracelet, if you will - yeesh!
