Today we were in Charleston for my husband's bday and he took me to the LYS (he's very, very sweet :inlove: ) where I saw this 100% soy silk tape like yarn from SWTC(southwest trading co)! I had been wanting to try it AND the store is moving and it was 50% off, so we got all of it, but there were only 5 skeins. I need help...have you any ideas what I can make for Lonnie with this? Total of 875 yds of yarn; gauge: 4sts, 6 rows with size 8's. The name of it is Phoenix, color is natural. I know it's not enough for anything so large as a sweater...but I need manly ideas...have you any? He's so sweet, when in the sock yarn section, he grabbed 2 balls of white yarn and asked if I would make him some short (ankle ht) socks for gym....YES, of course I will :D .
Kelley has recommended the book to get for our 'sweater tutorials'...Lonnie ordered it :D . I'm very much a 'garment' novice...is this in any way enough yarn for any type of a t-shirt...?!
Any and all help and suggestions are welcome :D
Thanks, ya'll ;)

I found this scarf (http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/cabled-alpaca-scarf.htm) to do for Lonnie and it will look yummy made out of this (http://www.knitpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=863) yarn that he bought me when we were in Charleston :D . I should have plenty left over to do a hat and I'm sure I'll be able to fashion some socks (when I find the sock yarn to blend with this color), as well :thumbsup:

:roflhard: I never noticed that pattern before.

Looks like you could even do it out of sock yarn if you run out of the soy!

There is a pic under my signature...I wonder why it's not showing up for you? It shows on mine. You're not missing anything though :)

Actually rebecca, you're not the only one that has the problem, as for why Kemp can see it, my theory is because she has it already on her system, which would suggest that the pic is not on Amy's server anymore, only thing I can think of, is to reupload it.

hmm...stupid computer. If you just can't stand not seeing the nothing you are missing...just go to my blog page. I have three little buttons in the top of the right navigation bar and the pic on here is the one of the woman knitting.
