My Blisco swatch is drying. In the meantime, despite lovely sunshine last week, this week I'm back to wearing the winter accessories:
This is my Calorimetry, knit with what remained of the Malabrigo twist after my Bandana Cowl. The yarn is still gorgeous and I like the pattern (mostly).
This is warm and practical for those days where I just can't face leaving my hair down. Only slight issue is it's a little big/slippy-offy. I'm not sure if this is my button placement or a feature of the ribbing stretching out once on my head.
I've not had much luck with socks lately. The lovely Effervesce socks would make excellent flight socks but are a little tighter than I usually like for everyday wear. At this point I can't bear to frog them so they're sat in time out until my feet shrink or I get a grip on myself and get on with what must be done. In the meantime, I started some alpaca socks to cheer me up: long story short, they didn't. They pooled something chronic.
So I've gone back to a yarn I know: Patons Linen Touch in colourways Carnation and Lilac.
