|Psychedelic Silk Yarn dress|
This psychedelic silk yarn dress was completed in January 2012. It elongated after each round of wash and the colours ran. When we moved to New Jersey in February, I unraveled this dress and began a re-knit session with my own pattern. There was a small ball of purple wool yarn that I bought from a wool farm in Switzerland -- I included that to extend the sleeves. This reworked dress remains long; I might have to be careful with each time I hand wash it.
Even though it no longer is as bright and psychedelic as it once was, I like the blended violet tone. One time in a Korean restaurant in NYC, a lady paid me a compliment. It makes me happy that I'm not the only crazy purple lady.

I thought I had great plans for this yarn, but each cast on was met with dissatisfaction -- I unraveled it several times and let it fall by the wayside and moved on to other projects. Honestly I did not know what to make and when I did, I lacked the confidence in having enough yarn... It was only early this month that I decided to attempt a dress or tunic. Going to my default preferred knitting pattern, this will be a simple top-down knitted raglan sleeve dress. More yarn could be added to make it to a desired length. Fingers crossed!
