Pattern for Plymouth Shire Silk?
 
HELP! I just frogged a shawl made of Plymouth Shire Silk and now need a new pattern to make with all this lovely yarn. It's a denim blue that is kind of tweedy. I would love to do a tank top or a better shawl but I'm not sure what would go well with this yarn. I'm worried some stitch patterns won't show up well because it's tweed. Any ideas? I seriously cannot find FOs on the web made from this stuff (except for the Plymouth site and those weren't too attractive to me.)

Thanks for any input. I'm kind of a newbie so really unsure about pairing yarn with patterns.

I'm sorry nobody's replied yet, that's gorgeous yarn.
I couldn't find patterns in my google search for you either. Do you want to try something like this?http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/...bynumbers.html

I'm currently using it to remake dh's favourite sweater, adding cables, etc. You could leave it plain or incorporate some stitch pattern/cables if you want too.

Good luck!

If you join Ravelry, there are a number of items that people have made using the yarn. I saw some purses, scarves, shawls, sweaters, and a hat.
