This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

On my knitters loom, almost finished.
I warped up using black DK merino on a 7.5 dpi reed. Unsure what to make I decided to make a sample fabric using repeating motives/stitches. With the main body in sari silk, then patches of merino either shot through with silk or using Bookers Bouquet to give texture. (see picture below).
It makes a perfect sized shoulder stole the weight of the sari silk keeping it in place - but I am still tempted to cut it and make a bag. I do have enough sari silk for another project - so undecided.
I love my knitters loom and really love this fabric *does happy dance*.
