Awesome in laws!

I got a package from Matt's mother yesterday.

They had been down in Moab (UT) and she visited an LYS where she picked out three skeins of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend for me.

So I have 450 yards of dreamy yarn in beautiful colors and I have to figure out what I can do with it. It's 30% silk, 70% merino; 5.5 to 6 sts per inch; US size 4 to 6 (suggested).


Sounds like a potential scarf to me---all that luxurious silk and merino-----simple pattern to show off the colors and lengthy enough to drape well !!!

Yum. What a great Mom-In-Law!

I agree with dobbysoxer that it seems to beg to be near your neck at some point, though I would be tempted to knit a shawl. I have a thing for silk/merino blends and shawls.

If it is as nice to work with as Malabrigo Silky Merino, it will be a true treat. I knit a neckerchief in Silky Merino and can't wait until Winter so I can wear it again. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
