It’s finished, that tricksy cowl, and thankfully I do like it. Relief. But it needs a) blocking and b) someone else to take the pictures of me wearing it, so proper photos still to come. In the meantime, have a little teaser picture of that glorious material, all casually dropped in a heap and yet still oozing charm. This whole project is so decadent it almost hurts — cream yarn, for a start, and one hundred percent silk. Just to make a silly little not-really-cowly jumper? But it’s so astonishingly gorgeous. I could curl up in it and make a nest of soft, luxurious extravagance forever.
