Ribbed Wrap Top

As everything is becoming lighter and warmer there is a need to reflect that in my knitting. The beauty of pure silk. A wonderful sheen and delicateness.

The yarn is on its way from Consider The Lily and in the meantime a square for guage has been knitted, washed and blocked. Absolutely essential for this Debbie Bliss pattern.

Lessons must be learned from other knitters about sizing and ease and drape. This will be a challenging piece of textile to execute.
