Mystery of the Sea.
Handmaiden Sea Silk.
Handmaiden Sea Silk is a luxurious silk combined with Sea Cell (a cellulose based fibre made with Seaweed) which gives the fiber a dramatic sheen and beautiful drape. My daughter gave me a Loopy Ewe gift certificate last year for my birthday and, after hearing the many praises of Sea Silk, I purchased a skein in the ‘Paris’ color-way.
This Silvia Harding pattern was gifted to me by a knitting buddy when I admired her Diamond Fantasy on her blog. She hasn’t blogged in a long while so I hope she somehow sees the pattern she gifted to me knit up. I started two other Diamond Fantasy shawls with different yarns but my skill level at the time was not advanced enough to understand what I was doing and I ended up frogging both. It was nice to pick the pattern up again and finally comprehend it! (Ravelry details)
I had a tough time capturing the lovely colors of ‘Paris’ so here is yet another photo. If all goes as planned, I should be in Paris next May wearing this shawl. My year of knitting is planned around all the countries we plan to visit, you know how I like to knit memories!
