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.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pick yarns that are colorful and that feel good against the skin. Go for softness and colors you love.
