New yarns and a little more hanky panky

If you're interested - the yarns from Miss P's dye session are now in the shop - they include several one-of-a-kind colourways created by Miss P herself

There is Tabby Cat (worsted and fingering), Fluffy Cat Lite, Alley Cat, Stray Cat and some Twinkle Cat Gold.

And I'm still playing with my hankies. I've started a simple feather and fan scarf.
I love how its turning out. It's need how the drafted fibre pulls together in the stitch. It's a neat process, but definitely not something I'd want to do all the time. I think I'm going to have lots left over (it's a giant stack of hankies - I should have split it up and done two colours) so I'm going to find some coordinating yarn and make a beret - I'm thinking something like Alley Cat for the ribbed band, and then the silk hankies for the rest of the hat - what do you think?

Lovely yarn! I looked up on youtube on how to knit with hankies. Very intersting, but something I'll never want to do myself.

Love the sheen of the silk! I'm not sure if I'd do it again - I have to see how my first project turns out.

I started a project with some hankies a while back and I have ripped it out twice because it never looked quite right. Now that I see your gorgeous scarf, I am going to rip it out again and try the pattern you are using. I love it. I also want to try it again in warmer weather. Last winter my hands were so rough I nearly went crazy trying to work with the sticky silk.
