What materials did you use? I like to use yarns from local farms; this is totally a local project. The pattern uses two yarns held together. One was a hand-spun 100% wool purchased at Maine's Common Ground Fair; it had been hand-painted with spots of red, yellow, and green. The second yarns were a variety of leftover angora/wool blends from Oasis Farm or Ackers Acres, both angora grower/processors in Maine. I had several colors ranging from pale orange through pink to a deep wine. I changed them randomly. For the I-cord fringes, I added in a solid yellow and green and red yarns from A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm, also in Maine, which matched the dye spots on the hand-spun. US 10 circular needle for the body; 2 US-7 double points for the I-cord fringe. Locking stitch marker If you want to make a similar project, check the leftovers in your stash. This would be a great way to use up bits and pieces of unused yarns left languishing.
What are you most proud of? Awesome function -- neck support and warmth -- with fashionable form. It's better then a travel pillow away -- which are bulky, ugly, awkward to carry. With unlimited potential for using color and the fringe that moves, I'm just 100% proud of this design.
