This is the back, obviously. I decided not to do the cable motif on the back because I needed a very easy, straightforward piece to work. You know, the calming, mindless knitting that we do simply to relax? This has been the one, and it's been great. I love the Mulberry Silk. I love knitting with it, I love the way it shines, and I love the way I can throw it in the washing machine. Oh yes, I love it très beaucoup.
