I’d intended to finish this particular project in early August, as I had multiple weddings to attend last month and this accessory would’ve gone beautifully with my dress. However, I started just a bit too late for that.
I’m sure I’ll still find good use out of this when it’s finished, though!
This is the Cleopatra Wrap. I’m knitting this out of Redfish 20/2 silk. I’d intended to use it for this pattern from the get go, and I’m really pleased by how nicely it’s turning out!
I’ve never worked with 100% silk before, though, so this brings up a question: what’s the best way to block silk? I’ve wet-blocked wool/silk blends just fine, but I’m kind of scared to do that with an all-silk yarn for some reason. I’ll have to refine my search terms and poke around online for more info…
