Hip Knits in action

I couldn't wait to knit up that gorgeous silk that I bought from Hip Knis last week. I'm knitting Amber, which is the vest top pictured. The silk knits up lovely, its very soft and silky. The stitches slide very easily off the needles and make perfect V's. However, it does fluff up a bit when knitting and I do find myself covered in organge fluff, but it is worth it. I'm also not sure how or at what temperature you would wash it. I would definately stick to handwashing as it feels too delicate for the washing machine.

Chicago and I are ready for a photoshoot. We are just waiting for hubby to get snappy happy.
