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?

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.
