I succumbed to impulse purchases at Elfriede's Fine Fabrics this summer. This 1/2 yard piece of 54" wide silk shot chiffon (fuchsia in one direction, black in the other) was only $4 so it came home with me. It would have made a rather short scarf on it's own.
But, then I saw Habu N-80, a silk-wrapped merino yarn, at Twist during their summer sale. I bought a 1 oz skein (187 yds), cast on 40 sts and knit in elongated seed stitch on size 7 (4.5 mm) needles until I ran out of yarn.
Does your stash grow while you sleep? I do not understand how this ~2 yard piece of silk came to be in my luggage. When I unpacked my purchases from the trip, there it was. Where did it come from?
I would like a typo better
