I layered my new Balsam over a sweater today before heading out for an afternoon walk. Layers of knits. Spirals of warmth that gently wraps the shoulders. A bit of knitted elegance for the everyday.
Balsam by Ilga Leja
Jade Sapphire 8 ply cashmere in pewter, 4 skeins
4 mm and 5 mm needles
modification: knit neck warmer length for 11 inches and then started shaping
