and I need some advice. Through some rather tragic circumstances*, I've come into possession of some lovely silk yarn that I'd like to make something nice with - but I don't know what. I have approximately 1100 yds of the stuff, and it's a worsted weight - so it's enough to make a short-sleeve top, or a really nice shawl. The yarn is plied (2 plies) and is a blue-purpley color that's probably too dark for my complexion, but I don't care. Thoughts? I'm stumped.
Incidentally, the link is from the blog maintained by my friend Ellen and her sister. Ellen is an incredibly witty, funny and warm-hearted person; her blog is highly recommended.
*I don't mean to minimize or trivialize Niki's death in any way. I just don't know how to talk about it in this forum, so I talk about her yarn instead.
