Smooth Sailing with Silk

The openwork scarf if going to be a good portable knitting project!
It is only a four row repeat and now that I know
how to tell if I am coming or going with the front row, 
I will enjoy it! lol
It moves right along and since I have done a lot of  'sit n the car and knit' time,
I should be able to finish this pretty quickly!

I ended up using this old pair of needles that have just the right 
balance of slick and stick for working with the silk.
I call them teflon needles-they were popular decades ago
but still sold by the Susan Bates company.


  1. Great colours! A girl can never have enough accessories xxx

  2. Such a pretty blend of colors. Hoping you are feeling better!

  3. Oooh, I love this! It looks like the perfect width for a nice fashion scarf. I love the colors.

  4. Haha just the right slick and stick is just the prefect way to describe good needles. i love the way the yarn colors are playing with the pattern.

  5. Love that scarf. Scarves can feel endless, but I think those colors will keep you going!

  6. Love that melty-rainbow look — so pretty!
