Eclipse for the holidays

1:32 PM

Kidsilk Haze Eclipse is what happens when you let Liberace loose on your chic Kidsilk Haze.  With the aid of a single metallic thread, KSH goes from her demure self to all shiny and shamelessly showy Las Vegas showgirl.  That's why I love it so much.  I like shiny.  In the past Rowan has reworked KSH into a few different incarnations, all the while keeping the original of course.  But it's fun to change things up a bit with a twist.  For those of you who remember Kidsilk Night, it's similar, but even MORE shiny.  I'm knitting Luna as fast as I can to get this done by December when I think shiny wear should be my daily dress code. 

Gold beading on the cast on edge gives the lacy ruffle a bit of weight.  The color is Virgo.

Kidsilk Haze Eclipse is a blend of Mohair: 66%, Silk: 27%, Polyester: 4%, Nylon: 3% and is hand wash.  It knits up similar to KSH as 18-25 stitches per 4 inches.  I don't have to tell my long time readers how much I love KSH in any form or fashion, because, oh man, I do love this stuff.  When I post my finished project I'll share some knitting tips to help you work with this fine yarn.
