It is silk. Dyed silk hankies, to be exact. According to my fantastic KR Secret Pal, I can knit this silk hanky into a scarf. It looks a bit complex yet absolutely fascinating. I must admit I"m a little scared of a pattern that begins "find a quiet place" but I'll give this a try. Thanks Secret Pal. You are so creative!

Behold the eleventh square, which combines cables and lace. Totally messed with my head. I could point out all the erros in this but never mind. Next.

I finished my first pair of toe-up socks and this continues to be my favorite methods of socking. No kitchener. No picking up of stitches. Who could ask for anything more??

I'm going to do a pair for Tim with Mountain Colors Bearfoot next, trying to KnitPicks method of two socks toe up on two circs. Wish me luck!
