Drive-by post today to share progress on the first Curl I’m knitting: Icterine. It is made of gigantic braided cables:

Icterine

I started with leftover BFL-silk, the first part of which was used for the DK weight Viburni:

Until I ran out of yarn. Fortunately I have a lot more of the fiber, since this didn’t turn out to be enough scary wrap thing for what I wanted. So I spun a bit more, finished the yarn to be sure I had spun matcning yarn, and knit that bit into the scarf. I’m going to start spinning up the rest Right now.
