On Saturday I went to Knit Happens with a friend for a little stash enhancement. After a few laps around the store, I settled on this:
Handmaiden Sea Silk, 70% silk and 30% sea cell from Canada. It has a distinctly fishy fragrance. I hope the recipient doesn't mind... this stuff is pricey. I'm thinking of a scarf. Maybe something lacey.
Ella Rae Classic, 100% wool. I have the Maple purse in mind. The black for the purse and red the Malabrigo that I bought in Michigan can be used for the leaf. According to Holly, Ella Rae Classic felts even better than Cascade 220. I'll have to try it out myself and find out.
