Sea Silk Sweater
This sweater is knit in a yarn that is a blend of silk and something called sea cell, a fiber made from seaweed. It's a beautiful yarn, but mainly I'm just a sucker for the idea of odd fibers. The sweater itself is a triumph (for me) of experience over impulse: I knit it at a deliberately wrong size because I thought I knew something about how the yarn would behave (and thus, the garment would change size) after washing and wearing. And I was right! Awesome.
