OSW-the Second.

This is a late post, but I wanted to get it up here. Here is the second One Skein Wonder by Glampyre that I completed.

Stats: One Skein Wonder, Glampyre Knits
Yarn: Mango Moon Sari Silk, Mango Moon nylon (held with the silk) and Louisa Alcott Silk/Wool blend for the sleeve cuff and neck band
Needles: Denise, size called for in pattern
Mods: I doubled up the Sari silk and the nylon to give the body more give and more memory, based on a suggestion by the owner of Sweet Celeste's in Mt. Clemens. I ran out of Sari silk before the cuff so I picked up the silk/wool blend in a coordinating color and did seed stitch for the cuff and neck band with a sewn bind off. It's much more comfy than the first one I made, since the seed stitch/sewn bind off doesn't bind along my neck.
Love the results! The Sari Silk? Not so much. I don't think it's a fiber I will work with again. I have yet to wash it, and I have been warned to be very careful with that. Wish me luck!

Wow that's very pretty. Thanks for stopping by and leaving the fun comment. We almost ordered her that beer!!
