Silk tour around the world

The lovely soft silk came from Mary of Camaj Fiber Arts, and I was asked to knit whatever I wanted to make out of it to use as a sample for the yarn.
I had two/three skeins of worsted weith to work with, so the amount limited my choices. At the end I settled on a neckwarmer with a simple but pretty lace pattern.
And a pair of mittens, an adaptation of my earlier design.
I also added beads, to the elbow length lacy piece.
The package is already on its way to home...umm Florida (after all these years, I still feel "homesick" for Florida).
It was an honor to knit for Mary whose youtube videos I learned so much from. I hope she will like them.
