Knitter 1 - Neck warmer 0

Ha!!!! Take that, Cherry Garcia!
I cast on again immediately after my debacle with the twisted neck warmer and finished a non-twisted version on the bus ride home from Seattle yesterday:

I like it, but I'm not in love with it like I was in love with the yarn and the way it looks flat. Maybe it's the curling, maybe it's my short neck, but I feel you can hardly see the best bits. Perhaps I should install some metal rings around it and work my way up; a superlong Burmese neck would show off these cables a lot better.

In other news: check out my very first drop spindle spun cuteness:

As Dave so eloquently put it: "Righ there it looks like yarn and there it looks like sheep", but I don't care, my love for this little skein is pure and unconditional.

Thanks JoAnn, Charity and Therese!

You look like a very happy bride! And may be the Turandot (no that is not the name, it is in the last Knitty) suits you better.
