the silk road Got
the silk road
Got my sari silk yesterday. It's lovely. The person from whom I purchased it failed to mention that the vest she had knit with it
It's sort of strange stuff. It has no elasticity and is very strong and heavy. It will drape like crazy. I knit up a swatch, using small needles so the fabric is quite dense. Since I've heard mixed reports on its washability I have washed my swatch. A tiny bit of color run, but it seems to have held it's size pretty well. We'll see what it looks like dry. Now to file my nails (it snags like crazy!) and start knitting and scheming. It will be an tank with sort of a dropped boat neck... so we can call it drape, not droop.
