Silk and Bamboo

Originally uploaded by ziedu_mate
This was a little bit of an experiment. I've been making lots of Spring/Summer scarves using bamboo, which is just such a delight to knit, and I thought I'd try to add a bit of texture to one of them. I've added silk to both ends, one by combining it with the bamboo, the other by just knitting on in the chunky thread. About half-way along, I've added a panel of thinner silk, which really shows off the stitch pattern. The silks came from Oliver Twist, who had a stall at the Wonderwool Wales festival, and I've got another six hanks to experiment with.
