I had 150 inches of the Malabrigo laceweight left when I finished casting off. It was enough. The City Council cowl, it is done.

In real life, the Whale’s Road Malabrigo on top is a bit grayer and the cobweb cashmere is that bright if not more so. I swatched them together a few days ago, thinking at first, nahhh, but as they came together it was clear the combination improved the both of them. Warm and so soft; I’m quite pleased.

On a cold day it will be the blue brrrr’d of happiness for someone.

I never think to put two yarns together like that. This is one pretty combo!

That is absolutely gorgeous! And belated thanks for your continued support of Milk Pail. I’ve only been there once, and would shop there much more often if I was closer. They carry amazing items. Yum!

I love it when a combination helps each partner in the combo.

Now I know why I was compelled to buy some dyed mohair locks in exactly this color today. Your yarn whispering is crossing state lines, Alison!
