~450 yds. 18-20 st/4 in size 4-6 needle.

I'm not much for intarsia and I can't see this yarn knit in fair isle, BUT I have 3 colors, so... stripes? Several small somethings?

I'd love to make a tank or camisole, but I don't think I have enough. [I'm a size large]

Anyone? TIA.

I also have 4 skeins of Manos, in red. I wanted to make something for myself but now I don't know what that is. A wrap seems too boring, and after two ponchos for myself, that would be overdone. Any suggestions? I'm a medium.

Their new book called "Arts and Crafts" has a vest (see the blog below--its the green one):

It takes 4 skeins for a medium. There is one skein each of white and black for the trim, but you could omit that.

I just took a class at my LYS for a flower power crocheted scarf made with manos cotton stria. If I can find the name of the book the pattern came out of I will post back here. It called for 4 colors...
I think it was in this Design Souce Booklet

I have decided on a lace pattern poncho for a friend who is turning 30 in November. If I can get it finished in time!! If not, then it's for me. :)
