What to do with my SILK?
For years I have enjoyed petting the Jaeger 100% silk at my local yarn store, but never considered buying it. But when they told me it was being discontinued and was on sale, I bought up what they had left.

So now I have two balls (red and off-white) of fingering weight silk. And no idea what to do with it. Each ball is 50 g. Any ideas on patterns I could work with this?

Small purses, openwork scarves, etc. Any other ideas? Help me find a project for this wonderful stuff!

I would definitely make it something you can wear...a scarf or hat perhaps?

The problem is finding a pattern that calls for 200 yards or less. I don't want to mix this in with anything else -- it's too pretty! Does anyone have any good lace work scarf patterns that would work with silk? I don't want its weight to stretch it out!
