Silk love.

I bought some Sea Silk from Jolly Jumbuck when it was on sale during January. It was very much a spur of the moment thing, but luckily I got 1 of the 3 last skeins, and in a colour that would have been first pick for me anyway. When it arrived, it was love at first sight. I simply couldn't wait to do something with it, so I put everything else aside and cast on Gail. I LOVE this yarn, and I LOVE this pattern, it really is a match made in heaven. The colour is 'Amber', and it is an amazingly lustrous gold. The yarn is smooth and silky and a delight to knit with.The pattern is very much of the EZ variety, and assumes a fair bit of competence in lace knitting, and even though I haz none, I managed to work it out without too much drama. The KAL (knit-a-long) at Ravelry at the Beginners Lace group was helpful too!
I'm looking forward to both some more lace and more SILK in my near future!

Beautiful! It looks so much like gold that I'd expect it to feel solid Ü Must try some silk some day.
