Here is a picture of my drop stitch scarf/shawl I made from the wonderful raspberry silk I purchased at Rhinebeck last year. It was beautiful to work with and a breeze to make. It is so soft against your skin. I wore it as a scarf at Rhinebeck last weekend, it blended in with my Noro coat just a little too much, but it kept me warm. It looks nice with my scary Halloween spider don't you think?
Another drop stitch pattern in silk I bought a couple of years ago from a yarn store that was going out of business. It is a sad day when a yarn store has to close, but I got this beautiful silk yarn with little sequins in it for 70% off. This is my car project. Always in my car, ready to make a row or two in car line, heavy traffic, or unexpected meetings I have to attend. I took it to my sons mandatory PTA meeting last week and finished it there. Not bad use of my time!
