Thanks for this tutorial. Lorajean (Knitted Wit) just gave me a silk hankie yesterday and I'm going to play with it...

Thanks so much for explaining this! I've seen them mentioned a few times, but had no idea what was being discussed, I think of silk pocket squares for suits when I hear the term.

I guess I better get caught up on the Cloudy podcast, I'm a few behind now...


Great visuals, Maia! These were SO fun to play with at Sock Summitt!


Thanks for posting this and for helping me at sock summit! I look forward to knitting with the silk hankies I bought from you :)

Thanks so much for the super tute, especially for the pictures and information about how to join ends. I'm looking forward to any advice you have about silk caps. They seem more unwieldy to me.


Ooh, looking forward to it! I gaze at my silk hankies (thank you!) and wonder what I'll do with them. They are lovely, though. Knitting with them does sound like lots of fun... or shall I spin?
