View Full Version : What does this want to be?
12-27-2007, 09:21 PM
DM got me three skeins (324yds total) of this beautiful Cascade chunky baby alpaca. My poor photo skills don't do it justice, the color is much richer than it looks here. It is a dark teal/black and very soft.
I've been to loads of websites, and scoured here and Ravelry, trying to find something other than a scarf or hat/mittens to make with this yarn, since I've just finished Silver's palindrome scarf in nearly the same yarn.
Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What does it want to be? It wants to be mine. :teehee::shifty:

Ingrid for once you are wrong, it really wants to be mine!
That is beautiful yarn!
Do you have enough for a throw? That looks like really warm yarn.

It's not your photo skills, it's the way they make the cameras. The yarn is beautiful, but how many yards do you have? That way, Ingrid will know how much she's lusting after. :teehee: :teehee:

I have 3 skeins, totaling 324 yds. Not enough for a throw. I suppose I could try to get more, but it'll be a different dye lot...
Any ideas - other than stealing it? :teehee:

Would you have enough for a cowl or maybe a small shawl?
I found this cowl on Knitty:
Or this capelet also on Knitty:
Actually this shawl only takes 385 yds
I went into the search feature at Knitty and pulled up wraps for these.

Thanks! I'll search over there, too.

What about small purses?

Well, if it can't be mine, I'd say it looks like a snuggly wrap or shawl of some kind.

I say a lovely felted bag or slippers. Or mine!:muah:

seems I'm late in claiming this yarn as wanting to live with me ;) So I would say a nice cowl or cape or shawl. You might surprise yourself in finding that same dyelot somewhere. I found some on ravelry once in someone's stash and was able to procure some through a purchase. She didn't want it I did, we made a bargain. Worked great. Search through ravelry to see if someone else has your yarn and dye lot and if they are wanting to sell it.

Great idea, thanks! I'll look into that.
