slouching

Finally, a pic or two of my neck warmer, finished a few weeks ago.


I'm in love with this yarn from The Fibre Company (sadly no longer available at Loop) - it's savannah dk, a gorgeous soft blend of hand-dyed organic fibres - merino, linen, cotton and soya.


The end result is a slouchy, drapey, comforting neck warmer - so snuggly, yet light enough that you forget it's there. And barely a day goes by when I'm not wearing it.

A successful knit then.

Hi Diana,
the neck warmer looks beautifully soft and the colour is gorgeous.
Are you going to make matching wrist warmers i wonder to replace the ones... i'll say no more. dear Walter we all love him, though i think his jumping on your pillow in the morning beats Paws on mine!!
hope your week is good
with love

I can so picture you wearing it! And what a super yarn choice. I have the same neck warmer (but in boring gray) and I love it too! K x

I like your slouchy neckwarmer very much. It is ideal for the drafty day that is happening here!

Hello Diana. Your neckwarmer is lovely and having seen it in 'real' life I can vouch for its softness. I love that colour too. The weather has gone so much colder that I could really do with one myself though having lost my mittens, ought to make yet another pair of those first! Hope you are having a good week xx
