I knit a small scarf-shawl as a birthday gift
Doesn't the color look lovely against the spring green?
The yarn is Silken Straw from Alchemy Yarns of Transformation
The yarn was a bit like knitting with … yes …straw; I found myself pulling down on it when I couldn't see my stitch to make it bigger. It's lovely and a bit "crunchy" in texture.
The pattern is an old standby, Forest Canopy by Susan Lawrence. I tried a more complex lace pattern but this yarn is impossible to frog so I went with something that I knew would work and likely not need too much frogging!
A bit similar to knitting with this all cotton from Wolle's:
(how I spent Easter morning before house cleaning)
