A broken vow...

I broke my vow about not buying new yarn and I'm not sorry. Is this not worth a broken vow? It's Sea Silk, 70% silk and 30% sea cell which is a fiber made from sea weed. It's beautiful and sensuous and, when you sniff it, you smell a heady mix of silk and ocean breezes. It would make a lovely lace shawl but I really can't picture myself wearing a lace shawl anywhere. I'm more of a jeans person. Besides, a lace shawl would last about 2 minutes around my dogs. So I'm thinking about making the Silk Smoke cowl on the KnitNet site.

Well... if anything is worth a broken vow, then it's definitely this silk! Such beauty - and I can really imagine its feel to the skin! Fantastic!
