The Rib Warmer

The best thing about this project is it’s great for handspun – it is so forgiving. If you remember this was cormo and I tried the spinning for softness and speed technique. One ball was a bit larger than the other two and I used every last bit. It’s is so cozy and the collar is the best. It’s super flattering on everyone – the only other thing I would do is slip the first stitch on each row and I will dye the next yarn variegated. Can you tell, I totally want to make one of these for myself? (lol)

So I have to give my hands a break after the extreme knitting that has gone on around here, so back to a little embroidery and I’m hoping to do some wet felting over the weekend.

  • I want to knit one of those myself too after seeing yours- lovely! Do you have a rough idea how much yardage it took? My hands totally sympathize with yours- wrist is definitely complaining.

  • I’ve been thinking that I need to make one of those too, they look really cute on. The yarn you spun looks fabulous!

  • Hi! I really like the look of your rib warmer. Would you please be so kind as to post the pattern name or book, or was this an original creation? Should I start looking through my Elizabeth Zimmerman books to find it? Thanks! Linda
