rowan kidsilk haze sweater

steve kadel's picture

finally got pix. this is the lace sweater i ripped out 4 times at the start. once i got going, it went well. it's marie wallin design from rowan mag #43, pg 9 in kidsilk (crack) haze. it's a mauve with an eggplant trim, and the buttons are rice embedded in acrylic. it feels like air and it was like knitting spider web. i used size 7 needles and it took 5 skeins

Scrumptious!!! Tell Cynthia

Scrumptious!!! Tell Cynthia she looks totally hot - and that's coming from a gay guy. It's a perfect color for her.

Wow... I love the color.

Wow... I love the color. Kidsilk haze is one of those yarns I always admire at the store, but I know I'll want to shoot someone the moment I start working with it. I know I'd be dropping stitches left and right... Where did you get the buttons?

It looks great!
