Smokin' Hot: Crocheting with Unspun Silk

The following image is what is currently on my (new) Grafton Fibers crochet hook: ripple pattern #81, "Ocean Spray" from the "200 Ripple Stitches" book I mentioned on Wednesday. I love how the unspun silk looks like smoke -- that's when you know crocheting is hot! (lol)

As I draft each hankie for directly crocheting with, I love the "thick & thin" texture --and with how airy the stitches feel. The colors, a mixture of three different hand-dyed hankies, also seem to be in harmony with Spring.  :)
