WIP Sonata Crest of the Wave Tank - NOW FO w/PICS
I'm making this tank http://secure.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=134024 to hopefully wear to weddings this summer. I'm using Debbie Bliss 100% silk and oh my, is it a dream running through my fingers! I would say I'm a little less than 1/2 way done right now and I hope to have it done in a week. I think I'm going to have to buy another hank of the silk though, and at $14 each it hits my frugal nature a bit hard LOL.

Wow that is gorgeous!

And I've seen the Debbie Bliss silk for less on eBay, but odds are its not your same dyelot.
