This is the most extravagant yarn I have in my stash. I really like the color, Anya's Garden and it is one of the softest things I own. I love just picking it up and holding it every once and awhile. It is 2-ply Mongolian Cashmere from Jade Sapphire. The skein is 55 grams and approximately 400 yards and I have two!
The yarn is hand wash only, but I can't imagine knitting anything with it that would require much more cleaning than that. The softness and weigh of this cashmere seems to just lend itself to being knit up into a soft delicately handled item.
The problem is I have no idea what to knit. I bought this on impulse while I was on a trip for work. I haven't knit anything with it yet because I'm waiting for the right pattern. I really want to knit something I'll use.
In the end, I'll probably try and find a rectangular shawl pattern that I can knit with 800 yards. Maybe I'll just go through a stitch dictionary and pick a pattern. Any suggestions for a pattern or a specific stitch? I'm open to ideas!
