    i do knit and could see how this might be done, but i don’t know anything about weaving. silk stainless steel? i am absolutely fascinated and impressed with this. hope you don’t mind that you’ve inspired me to try a sewn version it won’t look nearly as ethereal as your beautiful creation, but i’ve got a perfect fabric to make a pretty functional piece that i might wear until it falls off of me!!! really, this is stunning.
