What do i make from this yarn?

Remember my Clapotis? I love the yarn. I adore the yarn. I still want to make myself something, probably a scarf. The Clapotis showed off the yarn beautifully but the pattern bored me to tears. I tried "Branching Out" and the pattern was more interesting but made the yarn look muddy. Or the yarn made the pattern look muddy. Or something.

So what can I make? looking for some of your favorite patten suggestions to show off an alpaca-silk blend fingering weight yarn, of which I have 333 yards. Beautiful colors, short repeats.

It's too bad that you're bored by the clap pattern because your photos of that yarn as a clap look amazing...

How about a simple feather and fan? They'd also make super-soft handwarmers.

I'd make a BSJ from Elizabeth Zimmerman for one very lucky baby girl! The blending of colours would look fab in this pattern.

Hey schnookums!

I love my slippers! I am wearing them right now! I'm glad you can put the Yarnmarket thing to use.

I am sorry Maya has been so sick. I'm gonna give you a ring soon.

Love, love, love!
