My grandma bought this yarn http://www.herrschners.com/products/product.aspx?sku=711133 thinking it would be good for facecloths. I'm still trying to gently educate her on knitting with the proper sized needles, etc. She knitted a swatch using US6 and was suprised to find it stiff - [size=2]sigh[/size]. She sent it to me & I got a nice fabric using US9. But I'm looking for ideas on what to make with it. It's chained yarn, 100% mercerized cotton, so it has a nice sheen, cream color, 42 yds per 50gm. I think she sent 3 or 4 balls.
The only thing I can think of is a cute little purse, maybe with a dark felted bottom (I have wool in different colors), or even one of those footed purses. If anyone has any other ideas or knows of a really cute pattern, I'd appreciate it. I can make up a purse pattern on my own, but I love seeing other people's ideas.
