Don't you just ADORE instant gratification!!

What with the Flowerbasket Shawl and Dad's socks tonking along without much change or excitement (consistent enjoyment, don't get me wrong, but no "I've finished a sleeve!!" moments) added to my recent rediscovery of my stash goodies, I decided to cast on for an instant knit!

I give you.. something a little pidgey*!!

Hehe! I'll write up the pattern and post it here - super easy to knit and so fast on thick wool. This one will be tucked away for a present later in the year - either birthday or Festivuss, we'll see :)

p.s. I am actually a lot more thrilled about this FO than I appear in the photo - it was EXTREMELY crazy bright and sunny when I took the shot!

*Pidge = neckwarmer

I can write the pattern for you.

"Using super bulky yarn with super huge needles, do a 2 x 2 rib for as long as it can fit your neck.
Then bind off.
Sew buttons."

Just so there is no confusion, F. O = Finished Object.

That's awesome! I've been scouring Ravelry for a quick knit neck warmer pattern for a few weeks now and haven't found *just the right one*. Yours is the one I've been waiting for! You rock!

Excellent!! I know what you mean, sometimes I get bogged down in too many big things!!

It looks great & the toggles really finish it off nicely. You are a knitting genius to come up with this!
