Cambridgeshire not Cornwall

Snagged at St. Ives Country Market.

Nordic Niceness

A new collar/scarf up on Etsy. Really love the top toggle and it’s swirly, stripy pattern (thanks NOfkants Curios, http://www.folksy.com/shops/NOfkantsCurios). It’s Pure Southdown Wool and a silk/wool/angora blend. The last one I made had 12 squares, but my tension is firmer now and this one has 14. I am very happy with the Scandinavian folk feel it gives me.

Benedict, Your Neck Looks Chilly.

I like to picture Benedict Cumberbatch wearing this with a battered chocolate brown cord jacket. Or maybe with sage velvet. That’s why I’ve stationed myself outside his London townhouse for three weeks. He hasn’t come out. I know he’s in there. When I use my heat sensitive camera I can see him moving about. I’m not confident about getting to hand this over to him before next years Baftas, so I’m putting it on the open market.

It’s made from the Yarn Gallery’s Mistral in Winterberry.

Unexpected Love

If I’m honest with you, three squares in I was about to start frogging. It looked, gulp, drab. Then I found some sweet pink in the stash and added it in. Then I decided the squares needed doubling up rather than being long and skinny. Stuck on some toggles (thank you NOFKANTS CURIOS) and I feel like the EINSTEIN OF YARN!!!! There are an infinite number of ways to wear this. Okay, a finite number. But a really big finite number. Like nine. It’s up on Etsy. I will audit my best looking friends and have it modelled for you soon.
