Lambency worn around the neck, kerchief-style

Lambency

Lambency: the quality of being softly bright or radiant. The perfect descriptor for the marriage of the Knitted Wit Glow Up Rainbow and the magical Kelp Cakes. This project was a happy-making, life-brightening endeavor from start to finish; I hope it proves to be the same for you.
