No, no, I haven’t gone and bought a kitten. That would be absolute mayhem! I’m talking about this yarn:


A subtle, dusty grey; Madelinetosh Merino Light in “Kitten”. After the high drama of the last FO, I decided to make something useful again, to plug a much needed and frequently identified gap in my wardrobe: simple inner layers. Pretty enough to be worn on their own in mildly chilly weather, but good for layering under thicker knits in the cold.

Every time I travel to Kenya or India, I promise myself (teeth clenched and shivering), “more light inner layers!” And then I return to warm humidity and forget. But not this time. This one’s going to be a Thermal (I confess to waves of nostalgia after looking at the issue containing Monkey; was the sock craze really nine whole years ago?) with stockinette sleeves for textural contrast. Everything shaped with CustomFit, of course.
