I'd been wanting to knit one of these for a really long time. I'll admit I first read the directions when it showed up in Knitty, back in 2008?, and remember thinking I need to up my skills before I tackle that one.
So, I waited, saw the thousands of knitters knitting them on Ravelry and finally bit the bullet. I can now say that was one of the most fun knits I've done. There is nothing like the feeling you get when you drop your first column of stitches on PURPOSE! You hold your breathe and hope you did it right!
I'm really enjoying wearing this to work, it goes with so many of my clothes, wrap it around your neck with a sweater/skirt and I feel like a million bucks!
