Helena has not only dyed my custom mawata(s?) but sent me images (these are them, taken by her) and I am doing happy skippy dances over the lusciousness.

I have no idea whether I can pull off a viable garment with this, but I sure am going to have fun trying.

Meanwhile: travel knitting.  I am out and about a lot the next few days and needed a project that wasn't at a difficult stage. Since I couldn't resist knitting the socks that were supposed to be in reserve for this purpose, thereby bringing them to a difficult stage, I worked frantically to get the more complicated socks past their heels.

This is the first one, finished before supper last night; the second arrived at its destination a few hours later.

I'm trying not to bet I'll be wearing these on Monday, but you know - I bet I'll be wearing them on Monday.

P.S. - in spite of the frantic, I made an executive decision that it is spring and changed the banner from snow to flowers.  Enjoy!

Are you going to spin the silk, or knit it unspun? Either way, whatever you make will be gorgeous!
