1 – 2012: Herringbone Neck-Warmer

It’s almost the 15th of the month and I haven’t picked up my knitting needles.  Enough of that!!!

I found the perfect pattern to get me started this year — the Loops Yarn Herringbone Neck-Warmer.   This will also be the first project in my stash busting efforts.  I’m on a yarn-diet for the year — at least until October — but I’m sure I’ll be able to find yarn I can use in my very large stash.

The pattern seems quick, easy and I’ll be able to learn a knit stitch pattern and a new technique (creating button-holes) — perfect!!!!

Loops Yarn even has a clear, concise video showing how to produce the stitch pattern.  How much better can it get?  🙂
