After seeing this post (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20219&highlight=), I would definitely go with the Scrunchable Scarf (http://www.knitlist.com/96gift/giftsscarf.htm). :inlove:

Send them to MEEEEEEEEEEE! :teehee:

Really though, I do love the look in the Scrunchable like knitqueen suggested above.

I just made a scarf with that stitch pattern in another yarn. But it does look really nice in the picture. Maybe I'll swatch and see how I like it. It will look much different than the other scarf which was for a boy. Maybe......

I plan on going out and getting some just for this project:

Although I think I prefer the mods done in this post:

(Scroll passed Fetching for the scarf)

I like it because it shows the colorway off, isn't too boring, and doesn't detract from the yarn.

I do like the Scrunchable Scarf idea, too, though. I guess if I have troubles picking between 2 colorways I have an idea for the 2nd one I'd get!

Thanks for all the input! I decided to do the Sophie bag. I'm just finishing up the straps and will hopefully be felting tomorrow. My first felted project so that will be one more thing to check off my to-do list. :)

I think I might get another colorway and do another bag. The colorway I have turned out pretty dark. It's the Natural Navy colorway.

As soon as I have pics I'll post them in the FO board.

Here is my pre-felting opinion of the SWS. It is ok to knit with but the way the fibers are not twisted tightly and after awhile I found myself pretty itchy from working with it. I'ts almost like fiberglass. I don't think I'd use this for anything I was going to wear against my skin. I don't know how it will be after felting but I suspect that the loose twist will actually be beneficial
