yeah… who says that, I want to know!

I have no pictures to share today.

I have no pictures because the socks have progressed only a little tiny bit, although they remain my carry-around project.

The socks have progressed but little because I am totally, completely, absolutely captivated by the Seasilk. It’s wonderful. It knits like a dream, sliding across the needles like nothing. It’s soft as, well, silk, and will drape beautifully… and yet it has body. It even smells like good silk. And the colors in my one-of-a-kind, unnamed colorway just glow. I think I could knit anything with this yarn and it would be beautiful. What I’ve chosen to knit with it… well… it’s glorious.

But I can’t share because it’s a surprise for someone who sometimes reads here. So you’ll have to take my word for it. At least for now.

But this yarn! And they say that Kidsilk Haze is like crack. HAH! It’s got nothing on Seasilk. Already I’m planning on how I can get more of it. And what I’ll do with it when I do. It will involve lace, I’m thinking. I would like to try knitting something lace in the Seasilk Ivory colorway. I think that would be stunning.

I have to keep reminding myself that I do have two projects that have deadlines that I haven’t started yet. And I already have two lace projects on the needles. And I have two sock projects going. And I have some other stuff that I should be working on. And maybe I should actually finish a few of these projects first.

But, oh… that yarn.
