Splurge - Updated

I was recently offered a new job within the Libraries about which I am very, very happy. To celebrate, I went to Depth of Field in Mpls and got 4 skeins of Art Yarns Regal Silk in color 130. Scarf is forthcoming done. Learned one thing already: doublestranding silk is not a very good idea. The strands get twisted around and if you don't constantly untwist them, bad things happen. Probably lost the better part of a yard total to tangles. Silk is a wonderful fiber - warm when you need it, but not stifling when you dont. And soft, soft, soft.
