520 yards -- two skeins. I don't know what I was thinking when I bought only two skeins of this stuff! It's really gorgeous, and I'd LIKE to make a shawl with it (lacy?), but I don't think this is really enough. I had a thought of an Old Shale-esque shawl, for example... Any ideas? Or should I just order more yarn now that I know how yummy it is?

Thanks,

I'm so glad you like as I ordered 3 skeins myself and still waiting for my package. You could strand along with something else or introduce & alternate with a complimentary solid? Of course you can order more !

Maybe a tank top since summer is approaching? you could do a lacy top and bottom edge.

A tank top in those colors would be really beautiful, too... but since it's looking like I'll be spending my summer in either Cairo or Italy, I think a wool tank top would be a horrible idea!

I balled the yarn up yesterday, and it is just so nice. Still muttering about what to do with it, though!

Aren't evenings in both Cairo and Italy cool at times in the summer, especially Cairo? A small, elegant-looking wrap would be just the thing. Something more on the order of a stole instead of a shawl. You could do a rather lacy pattern and it wouldn't be too thick and heavy but would be just right for those air-conditioned spaces that seem to be 'icy' and/or cooler evenings.
