Indie Dyer: A Verb of Keeping Warm

Fiber: 100% Tussah Silk
Colour: Indigo Dye
Spun: Yours Truly

I absolutely love this pattern, it is defiantly one of those patterns that you can just throw in your bag and pick it up when ever you have a few minutes. This was what I had in my bag during the convention a few weeks ago. It only took about 5 days of stop and go knitting.

I also couldn't be any happier how beautifully the indigo handspun worked in the pattern. It just added to the the textural aspect of the pattern. I just find it so hard to actually use my handspuns.

This is definitely one of those happy happy FO's.
