Since I'm the in process of sorting all my stash, I thought I'd take some photos of recent acquisitions. I knitted up a little swatch of the Rowan Classic Natural Silk Aran, which is a blend of silk viscose and linen. I used a size 7 [4.5mm] needle and it doesn't have the drape that I want. I'll go with a size 8 needle for a more loose fabric.
I also crocheted some with a size E [3.5mm] hook. I like the filet much better. I have images of little crocheted thingies floating in the filet and a ruffle around the edge, so we'll see what happens.
