Isn’t this skein of yarn so luvrly? I’ve been working on turning it into one of my quick-and-dirty free patterns, something I’m calling the strangling vine scarf. It’s so lovely to knit and the yarn, the yarn feels so incredible through my fingers. It’s some of the softest stuff I’ve ever knit (really, the highest percentage of silk I’ve ever knit).
I bought this yarn at KnittyCity (probably my favorite shop in the city -so far). It was my summer splurge. It’s the seasilk that everyone has been talking about. I let myself buy it with the stipulation that I’d finish whatever I’d make out of it soon (so that it doesn’t ferment in my stash forever).
I’m not making anything too special, just a simple airy summer scarf. I’m calling it my Strangling Vine Scarf. I’ll post a quick-and-dirty free pattern write up when I’m finished with it. For now, it’s been put on the back burner (I’ll finish it for sure, I promised myself) while I finish knitting this pair of socks that I’m designing!
