knitting with silver (and, wire generally, I guess)
Hey. I just got inspired to buy some silver thread--er, silver wire--from Habu Textiles.

It is NOT easy to knit with--does anyone have suggestions? I tried oooos, but that was like teaching a pig to read (You know, frustrates you and pisses off the pig), and then tried with 1s, which seems SLIGHTLY easier, but my gauge is still erratic.

I think I should have started with Copper, which should be a bit cheaper, since frogging is damaging to the wire.

Also, suddenly I wonder--how do I splice the different skeins (er, spools).

Any advice/suggestions appreciated.

Cecile :thinking:
