Raw Silk Grenadines

Just remember where you saw this first as they will be all the rage in menswear shortly.

Lovely little springy cardigan I made from Shibui Heichi (the color is called Cascade). This stuff was a little rough (literally) to work with, I kind of understand why it’s discontinued, it has zero stretch and my gauge was not as consistent as I would have liked. It looks beautiful now though, I’m tempted to make another one with a different yarn.
