I have a definate weakness for Kidsilk Haze. I love the soft, floaty, fluffiness of it and mostly I love the colours. This is not my usual colour range, it is very difficult to photograph but it is an incredibly vibrant reddish pink, almost on fire, but somehow cool rather than hot. It is destined to become a Birch shawl for a friend who recently had her second baby. She has the most unusual colouring, beautiful porcelain white complexion and several feet of fantastically thick orange hair. She looks fabulous is clear bright colours and as someone who always feels the cold I am hoping a Birch will be just the thing for summer evenings.
I finally finished my ribbed silk cardigan, I'm not happy. The sizing is terrible and it gapes at the back, I don't know what to do, I suppose I should rip but I can't bring myself to do it just yet. Perhaps I will photograph it and post at a later date, I can't bring myself to look at it right now. I needed some replacement tv knitting and had some 4ply cotton lurking in my basket so I began this last night. I can't wait to finish it and then dance around Italian streets with a hunky Dean Martin lookey likey, I expect to be transported back to 1950s Italy the moment I put it on, I wonder if I'll drive a scooter or a lovely old convertable? Ahh, I love fantasy knits.
