This photo doesn’t fully show off the yarn. The silk just throws light around all the textured stitches. I haven’t worked with silk in a while because its hard on my hands, but this is worth it. I probably should break it up with some wool yarn to keep my hands from protesting too loudly. With the weather starting to warm up I’m tempted to get enough silk to make a top. But first I have to knit with what I have and finish a few things up.
The next time I have a sunny day to myself I’ll start to work repairing my Princess Shawl. In the mean time its chilling out in the freezer just in case. After I get it fixed I’m going to start working a few rows a day on it so I get some forward momentum.
