I have 3 skeins of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk. Does anyone have any patterns ideas. I was thinking about a scarf.

Is it aran weight, or dk weight?

If it's the aran weight, this Connemara scarf (http://sknitty.typepad.com/Connemara.pdf) is what I'm doing with my alpaca silk, and it looks beautiful. It's good cabling practice too.

I think 3 balls would be just right for that pattern, too.

That is a beautiful scarf pattern. Though I am not to sure about doing the cables. I have not attempted any cable patterns yet. I have been only knitting for about 1 1/2 years.
