the mending. I did whip that edge - about 2" long - with a very sharp needle and a doubled strand of thread (I didn't even have an exact match but decided the "blend" was good).
Like I responded to Kristen, I dreamed about it Thursday night and had a clear picture in mind of what I needed to do. It was actually very easy to secure the thread into the silk and then just wrap it around, back through a strand of silk, and around... until I'd covered the length of the cast-on edge. I took the photo for documentation. and of course (!!) I told the story yesterday (more than once!). but now, I think it's over.
the finished piece is lovely.
the colors blend beautifully (pardon me if I do say so myself!)
and it's very wearable.
