A little bit of luxury

Knitted Neck WarmerWhen I saw that Stash Fine Yarns had some pure cashmere yarn in their sale I knew I had to have some. And when they had some mauve left ..... well, it was meant to be.

Knitted Neck WarmerBut what to do with just 75 grams of purply-pink cashmere? That's not a lot of yarn so I pootled around on Ravelry and found a sweet little pattern for a neck warmer. I set to work and completed the project in just one evening. It is sooo soft. Pure luxury!

Knitted Neck WarmerIt's going to be great for cold wet days. No soggy scarf ends. No under-the-coat scarf bulk. Just snuggly, gorgeous cashmere. I've ordered some more yarn so I can make myself a matching pair of gloves.


  1. its lovely, yummy & in my favorite color too...I could have used one last winter in Oxford...although these days Northern California is becoming oddly cold as well...

  2. oh that is lush i cant believe you made it in one evening

  3. Oh yes, I soooo need one of them. Please knit me one!!!! Joy

  4. Would you seriously like me to, Joy?! It'd be no trouble at all.

  5. Oh Laura, yes please I would. That would be great. Thank. Joy x

  6. You do such awesome things with yarn (and glass!) Are you going to do some glass buttons to go with your yarn pretties?

  7. Hi Laura,

    Gorgeous colour and design, what a fantastic idea will have a nosey myself.

    I went to the Harrogate Knit and stitch show yesterday, long tiring day but so worth it!

    Best wishes,
