The Honeycomb Shawl is done.
Much to my consternation, I have a full ball of the black silk and quite a bit of the slubby silk leftover. So much for my calculations! Still, I have a shawl of a good size and the honeycomb structure has done what it was supposed to: make a feature of the fancy yarn by contracting into a cell-like texture with the slubby silk forming an undulating line.
I rather like the Seta Soie silk woven up, too. It’s not shiny like you’d expect of silk, but soft – almost like cotton. Which is great because I have another four balls in brown that I hope to weave into fabric for a summer top.
Though I’ll probably leave that until Spring, as I doubt I’d weave it in time to catch the last warm days of autumn here. Even with the unusually warm, dry weather we’ve been having.
