This yarn has caught my eye. Any ideas for using it? I would really like to buy some, but I have to have a plan first. Has anyone knit with it? If so, what did you make and think about the yarn?

I love it. I made a cowl thingy -- basically just a tube -- using three or four balls (sorry I can't remember) and it's nice and soft and drapey. I'm also making a shawl with it (haven't worked on that one in quite a while!). I think it will block nicely. I bought 4-6 balls of a few colors, knowing I can use it for many different things.

It's very thin! I used it doubled and made a wonderfully soft wide scarf. It's in my photo album - the idamond lace shawl in the aubergine color.

You could make a nice lace shawl like one of the elizabeth shawls on KnitPicks. They take less than 400 yards.

It's really lovely stuff.
