Sooo, I needed some instant gratification and I casted on for another project. Don't think I only have two things going, I made another project bag because I have so many unfinished objects, see the peace fabric above (other ufos: jenny's socks, maria's wedding lace shawl, cable bag, pi shawl). Add another to the pile. This is one I've been thinking about for a year now. My friend Carrie gave me some Handmaiden seasilk, it's a silk and seaweed yarn that is deadly soft and gorgeous. And expensive (she's a good friend to have!). It calls for the perfect pattern. I found this stole pattern for Diamanta and fell in love. I knitted this one repeat while waiting for the hubby in surgery. I like the pattern, even the purl 15 together (whaaa!) But, it's totally not working for this yarn. I think there is too much drape. The pattern needs a stickier yarn, doesn't it? I have to take this out and find something else, something that shows flat stitches for this silk yarn and would be close to my skin. What do you think?
I should buy the cashmere from the store and use it for this Diamanta pattern, shouldn't I? I mean, I like the $6 pattern and it needs $45 worth of yarn to go with it. Then, I'll think of something else to do with the silk!
