I made a cowl! It's a large stockinette tube that you twist to keep your neck and head warm... the yarn is very thin, but it REALLY keeps my head warm. Great alternative to a hat, because it doesn't squash my hairdo. Only took one skein.

I have pictures of KK and I "modeling" it, but I have to resize them....

I've ordered some to make the Abundance Afghan free pattern from the KP site (basically just a huge garter stitch rectangle). Just couldn't resist, and it looks like good mindless in-front-of-the-TV knitting.

I got some and it IS soft. I was thinking I'd make the To Dye For pattern from SNB with it.

OH!!! The To Dye For pattern is PERFECT for this yarn! One of my husband's cousins used it; I don't remember if it was red or green, but she has a tank top in the same color that she wears underneath, and it looks fabulous.

Here's the pics... neither of us are wearing it correctly, with the twist, but you get the idea. It really keeps your haid warm!

I have 2 skeins of Suri dream in woodland, and I've also been wondering what the heck to make from it. I have the Bella scarf pattern (from knitpicks), but I don't know how I feel about the ruffles, plus I'm drowning in scarves to make as it is.

I was also thinking of the "Misty garden" scarf from scarf style. It calls for a similar yarn in a worsted weight, but I think it might sub ok.

I've ordered it for Lacey from Knitty. I hope I get it soon and that it's not too difficult to work with.

I made To Dye For with it. Here's a pic (though not a great one).

I also made a prayer shawl with it last fall, one of my first projects.

I like the finished product of this yarn better than I like working with it. I think it would work better with the KP Options needles (with their sharp tips) than with the Addis (which is what I used).
