I am working on a small project. It is going to be a button up lace cowl – the Cleo Cowl or Collar. It won’t take too much yardage and could be knit and then painted or just knit with a fabulous DK yarn.
I am working on the painted version first. The yarn I am working with is Himalayan Silk from “One of a Kind” yarns from Infiknit. I love the natural colours and hues of the silk in its undyed state. This is a very “rustic” yarn, thicker and thinner in spots, sometimes very thin, but being silk – still is very strong. It started out a little stiff, but once knit, softened up amazingly.
It was a joy to paint – it is steaming right now. I can hardly wait to see how the silk took the colours!
