Warm Embrace


During my trip this past summer, I stopped by a lovely knit shop, where I found this wonderful yarn that is a blend of cashmere and silk. At more than 20$ for a single ball of it, I decided that I needed a small project to make if I were to buy it, and the neck warmer displayed on a mannequin at the store seemed like the perfect choice at the time. It later turned out not to be, and the neck warmer I had knitted quickly got undone to be remade into a regular scarf. I hinted at the work-in-progress a few weeks ago (here) and, although a little later than I had hoped, I managed to finish it and am eager to wear it for the remainder of winter - and maybe even into early spring.


Of course I was so excited about it, I couldn't help but play around with it - I'm really thrilled to see just how versatile it is.
