I am not the most creative, but decided to make a dickie for the Friendship swap.  It is is simple rectangle made with a very nice yarn. Hopefully the spectacular nature of the yarn shows up in the photos.  It is actually three yarns in one.  One is quite sparkly, one is bumpy, and one is ropey.  When you click on it, it should show well.....

Then I found some buttons to match the type of yarn and put them on the side close to the ends so it could be worn flat, just under a blouse or sweater.  I really did love the feel of it and the look of it under my blouse. Hopefully the recipient does, too.  I think in some ways I like it better than the cowls you see which are overwhelming to me.  AND it is oh-so-warm!

Try making one if you haven't already. Quick, easy, and oh, so comfy!

  2. That's pretty! At first when you see the pic it looks like it's a hide from an animal like a wolf or such. I bet it's really warm. How cool to find buttons to match!
