Silk Hankies



I have bought a number of silk hankies/caps over the years.  I love silk but must admit I didn't really know what to do with them except needle felting.  The other day I happened across a youtube video about drafting a hanky.  So I gave it a try.  It was surprisingly easy.  The bottom picture is my result.  I am excited to experiment with that a bit more.  While I had out my silk I decided to color a silk cap with my Inktense blocks.  Top picture shows that it works rather well.

Yarnharlot knits right from them, she did a blog post about that a while back. Seems they make very warm mittens...
