View Full Version : Any ideas for cashmere

02-16-2005, 09:51 PM
I ordered some cashmere from smileys and it came in today. :mrgreen: My fingers are itching to grab the needles and begin. However Ö

Iíve never knitted with cashmere before, soooo I only bought 2 skeins. Any ideas? A scarf maybe?

thanks b/c you only knit naughty things!

Maggie, why not try a scarf, but maybe make it something more involved than just a plain loooooong rectangle... put some ribbing or wavy edges (something reversible). You could also just use it as a part of another project; the edging of a bag, or the cuffs on a pair of mittens. A cashmere eyeglass case would be really cool, and it wouldn't stratch your lenses! You could knit a whole line of small accessories that all match b/c of the cashmere!
