Notes about the yarn:

The subtle twist of the Silk Day Dream takes getting used to. It works up to a nice light weight, perfect for the warmer weather when knit at a looser gauge. It sings in the simple stitches but can also work on lace patterns. The silk provides a gorgeous sheen and the drape is one of luxury.
