So, I have 2 skeins of this awesomeness coming to my door, and I need some help deciding what to do with it.

It is a fair trade/fair labor¬†product from Turkey. 95% cotton and 5% real silver, the name is Sifa (which means “healing” in Turkish). There will be approximately 150 yds and looks to be a DK/Sport weight yarn. I’m so excited to get this on the needles. But what to do with it from there?

I just can’t wait, going to go over to Ravelry and Drops (my two favorite “go to” sites for inspiration) now for ideas…….

Let me know what you think I should knit………

And in the meantime, check out this awesome new yarn, HERE, at Knit Outta The Box!

PS, I’ve decided to knit the Calorimetry Headband, over on Knitty! Need a headband to go under my bike helmet, so look for a review soon!

    This looks interesting! Anti-bacterial silver…… you could make dishcloths or very short socks or slippers. I love handknit cotton dishcloths -much better to use than papertowels!

    I agree that dishcloths would be nice since the yarn is antibacterial, but my first thought was that you should make some jewelry or hair accessories. I think that would be especially cute since you’re working with precious metals.

    Hmm. I’d make biking gloves with padded palms. Sort of gloves with half-length, open ended fingers, with a second layer on the palm. The reason is that like all exercise equipment biking gloves get sweaty and stinky. Anti-bac would keep them pleasant longer. -k.

    with warm weather knocking on our door, how about a versatile, yet simple, tank top that could be dressed up or down?

    I think a versatile cowl, something with a nice stitch pattern…

    A small, chic purse.
