09:50 pm - I'm alive . . .
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.

Have you seen Wendy's (from Knit and Tonic) new pattern on stitch diva? Sahara I think it's called? It uses worsted weight silk and has a great shape. This is probably blasphemous for me to say, especially as a designer myself, but... the shaping is fairly simple and you could probably figure out something similar yourself. Just a suggestion! :) Also thanks for giving the link to Ellen's blog - I remember you told me about it a while ago, but I kept forgetting to actually look at it. It's bookmarked now so problem solved!
