What did you use for the diamond patterned scarf? The colors are beautiful.

Hi ...It was "Hand Maiden" from here in Nova Scotia, called "Swiss Mountan" 50% Tussah Silk and 50% Mulberry Silk

Can hardly wait to do such stunning work. How cool! Is silk hard to knit? And what needles do you use for the silk?

Hi comes in many forms from slippery to almost rope like. The one I used was about a DK weight (22st 10 cm) and was very smooth. I knit this on addi turbo's which I use for most things. If your knitting is as amazing as your quilting you will be an awsome knitter.

Very Nice!

Dennis, your work is wonderful. I am a sweater fan and yours is stupendous. I also like the Fleece Artist and her daughter. I have never tried that blend but think I have to. The definition is great.

Very lovely work, Dennis. That silk is absolutely gorgeous. The blend of tussah and mulberry is one I've never seen before but seems to show the best qualities of both types. Thanks for sharing.

Looks great Dennis! I'm considering that Donegal Tweed for a sweater for my son, and this gorgeous piece inspires me.
