The weather has turned very chilly indeed here in Western Australia and that combined with an ever present lack of sleep has seen me reach into my stash for something bright and inspiring. I've decided to attempt a Milo Vest in the gorgeous "Forest in Spring" colour way I got from Candy Apple Lane a while back. It is a 10 ply while the pattern calls for an 8ply but given Big B is a tad bigger than the biggest size of the pattern, I am willing to chance the inevitable distortion that will come from using a larger yarn will work in my favour.
I've also finished the custom Feather and Fan scarf in Morris and Sons Quartet yarn (Driftwood colour way). I love how lace really only comes to life once it has been blocked. In particular, with more subtle variegated yarns, this is the only way to tell what it is going to look like. I love its silky finish - who knew soybean silk could make yarn so luscious! The colour is a little more brown than shown here, being a wonderful mix of silver grey, brown and dark grey.
