What to do while waiting for my Sixareen problems to get sorted out and for the dark Fassett stripe sleeves to block? Knit me a cowl for the winter! The Churchmouse Inside Outside cowl to be precise, in a wonderful cheap fuzzy sequined (sequins!) yarn, Patons Lace Sequin.
The picture doesn't quite show how wonderful the sequins are--very tiny and subtle and non-scratchy next to the skin, yet they have a charming twinkle that's a lot easier on the wallet than Kidsilk Haze Glamour. Doesn't get much more satisfying than cheap and shiny!
