Progress

I'm still plugging away at the center panel of the leaf and trellis rectangle (p. 54). This is Handmaiden Sea Silk on size 7 needles; the fabric has a very nice drape. The pattern is easy but not boring (yet!), and I'm looking forward to finishing so I can tackle the border.

I love the way that yarn is working - it really looks lovely- what colour is it?

Someone just gave me some Seasilk. It looks fabulous in this pattern!

There's no color listed on the label, but after looking at Handmaiden's website I think it's Mineral. I fell for the colorway because it resembles my calico kitty.

The hand of this yarn is marvelous - a real pleasure to knit.

It looks beautiful! How many skeins of Sea Silk do you need?

I was wondering the same thing about how many skeins as I was also given only one as a gift. It looks wonderful!

It's gorgeous! I love that colorway, and it just looks nice and slinky. :)

Thanks, all! I have three skeins, which should be enough, yardage-wise. But I only got 13 pattern repeats - of 30 total - from the first skein, so please say a prayer to the yarn goddess for me.
