And a close up. The HipKnits silk is just divine. I was a bit rough with it (due to being impatient and not waiting for DH to come home to help me wind the skein) and have got quite a few ends to sew in. I'm going to make a Klaralund with my next purchase of silk. www.hipknits.co.uk. It was great fun to knit, but seemed to take forevere. It's not as long nor as wide as in the pattern but perfect for me, I shall be wearing its gloriousness in Devon this weekend.
