My favorite part: the catch. Simple, functional, unassuming, beautiful: like a cross between a hex nut and a piece of jewelry. I may wear the necklace backwards sometimes, so that the catch becomes the front.
The necklace is photographed against Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks, which arrived from inter-library loan today. My husband has already informed me that any of the four, five or six-stitch patterns would be appreciated. And the author gives instructions both for double-pointed and circular needles, so I may be able to face this project without an army of small needles that need to be juggled at the same time.
And I'm blocking the swatch from the Wing of the Moth shawl of hand-dyed Shaefer silk and Misti Alpaca.
