Silver Yarn. No, really. REAL silver yarn.
Of course the new Knitter's Review yarn review caught MY eye. OMG. If there was ever a yarn for me, this is it. Move over Mala-whatever.

It's a small gauge sock yarn first of all, which um, is my favorite yarn. But it goes one step further.

It contains real silver.

Sterling



I totally have money earmarked for a couple hanks of this stuff!

Oh.my.goodness. That's divine

After just reading that article, I feel like I need to dream up the most perfect sock pattern in the world and knit it with that. *sigh* Why must they keep tempting me?

ETA: Wait, Silver, I think you should come up with the perfect pattern in the world for it! And then you can share it with all of us! Seems like a perfect fit

That yarn looks phenomenal! I have been looking for a silvery yarn to pair with this nice sky blue kid mohair I have. I want to do a shawl-like thing with it. Perhaps this is it??

Oh suuuuurrrrrrre, as if I could think clearly enough to write a pattern once I have some in my hands, let alone a "perfect" pattern. You're so funny.

Um.. I'll think about it. HEE!!

They must have hired Rumpelstiltskin. I should have never let him leave the tower.
