Here's the black version of the yarn because I cast on with the cream ones before I got a photo.
And here's the finished object!
It wraps twice around my neck, plus some. I'm still trying to get a handle on the styling. It is soooo soft though and so warm, even though it's all holey! I would have taken a picture of me wearing it, but I was in my pj's pretty much all day. ;)
In other yarn related news, I did manage to pick what to buy and I'll show everyone when the yarns get here. After picking up the mail, I remembered that I had bought a skein of sock yarn from a destash on Ravelry! It was only a couple of bucks for this skein of Sock It To Me. Should be fun! I'm disappointed in the yardage, which I didn't pay attention to before. Grrr. Hopefully it's enough for two ankle socks.
Thanks for all your help and advice yesterday! I can't wait for my package of new yarns to get here!! :D
