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.
