Colin, meet World

Comfy, cosy, a nice warm mousy colour, knitted in soft merino – every librarian should have one. (And yes, that amazing room in the picture is a library… From Candida Hofer’s book, Libraries.)SONY DSC

This is Rico Essentials Merino DK and I wasn’t all that impressed with how it was knitting up, when I started – it was a bit too crisp, but a bath did good things for it. Everything softened and bloomed and lost its uptight twist, so now it’s all much more relaxed.SONY DSC

The issues I had with the collar don’t seem to have translated into problems of any significance with the final piece, so I’m going to assume that those sixteen stitches I couldn’t find were basically irrelevant (one can only say this with confidence at the very end of a piece… normally sixteen stitches would matter a great deal).SONY DSC

Also, its owner likes it, which is the main thing.SONY DSC
