The silk for the uber awesome silk hose is being shipped to me this week!!!! YAY! I can hardly wait to start them. I friended the person who's pattern I am using for the hose on Ravelry.
I am totally loving Ravelry. I am meeting so many people who do historical knitting both in and out of the SCA. I'm having so much fun.
The silk is from Halcyon yarn and is a 2/12 weight. I'm knitting it at a 12 stitches/ inch on size 00 needles. The swatch has a heavenly hand and I can hardly wait to see the color that Drea got with the cochineal. I think my fingers will be red for a number of months with the silk and my wool.
I knit another decrease on the Clessidra stockings last night. I slipped them on and they fit perfectly!
