Yesterday my husband and I were in Charleston, SC and went to their LYS (naturally) and they had some of South West Trading Company's 100% soy silk yarn, Phoenix (as seen here: http://www.knitpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=863) and my sweet dh bought all that they had for me; 5 skeins of the 'natural' color.
I would LOVE to have some suggestions as to what to make with it. Something masculine to knit for my sweet husband with this 875 yds of yummy yarn. I'm at a bit of a loss, the only thing that I can come up with is a nice cable scarf, but I'm not sure how 'masculine' this would be. There's not enough for a summer top of any sort.
PLEASE HELP ME....I am pleading.........any and all suggestions are welcome

Might there be enough for a vest?

Phoenix is worsted weight so a vest would be a good choice.

Yes, but he's not a vest wearer; at least he wouldn't wear one in this natural color...we've had that discussion. He thought he would hurt my feelings, but I said 'no, honey, I want to make something that you will use, tell me what you really think'.....'I don't think I would wear it'...no biggie, he just didn't want to hurt my feelings.
Thanks so much for your help, though

Becka,
Check out the new topic under Shawls and Scarves "Guy Scarves" There are some great ideas there for "Manly Scarves" There are also some great Seamen's scarves in the book Stahman's Shawls and Scarves by Myrna Stahman. These are knit narrower around the neck portion so they fit better.

Don't you just love the Besotted Scarf? I'm think of making it for DH for Christmas. I've not seen him wear one, but then again he's loved everything I've knitted for him so far.
