Silk Knit Suprise!!


Today I received my big box of silky knit....The first thing I noticed is that is was very heavy. I could not wait to open this box, and find all the yummy knits I ordered. I didn't realize though the silky knit was actually...pretty silky....

I tried to fold this fabric nice and pretty for these pictures, but folding six yard cuts of silky knit was quite challenging.



Being somewhat of a knit novice, I was thinking silky meant something like soft t-shirt material, but I was wrong....silky wrong...


So, now I have 18 yards of this. I have already ruled out anything for children with this fabric, but I have some ideas swirling for women's tops (mixing the colors in one blouse). I don't see myself making any dresses with this, but these tops with dark denim would look especially nice this winter.




On a cotton note I listed this little outfit today....
