No matter what I have on my needles, I am always easily distracted when my husband says, “I wish I had……..do you think you could make that?” Well, he has been getting back into fly fishing, and it is usually pretty chilly and damp on the river. A regular scarf isn’t practical with the ends flying around getting caught in the line or snagged by a hook. I had just made my cabled neck warmer and he said that would be the perfect thing for fishing, but plain and made of something that could get wet. So I dropped all my other projects to whip up a special neck warmer for his next fishing excursion. I decided to make the first version out of some Lion Brand Wool-Ease I had sitting in my stash, a little bit of wool for warmth and acrylic to keep it from shrinking and keep its shape. It is super soft too.

It is so easy to get distracted when loved ones make requests isn’t it?!? That’s how my husband got a vest four days after he requested one. (I think I was worried that he might change his mind so I knit that vest as fast as I could!) Great neck warmer! It would be great for skiing! I will have to make a couple of these soon. Thanks!
