It didn't look like there was a whole lot of Lurex left on the ball, honestly. But I seriously underestimated the remaining yardage. I made another ornament last night and there is still a lot left. While it may not be enough for a calendar, I might follow Angela's great idea of using them for Christmas cards. Thanks Angela!
Lately I've been noticing some beautiful knits in fashion mags. Here are a few that I had to rip. This jacket is by TSE if I remember correctly:
Those cables are very pretty.It would look wonderful in that Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk dark turquoise shade. But I hear this yarn starts to pill as soon as you start knitting with it.
This Kimono sweater is by Akris:
I'm sorry it's hard to make out, but I picture this with very high moss stitch cuffs and hem, and a dainty lace pattern in between, in Elsebeth Lavold's Silk Wool, which makes a very drapey fabric. That skirt wouldn't be too hard to recreate either and a great opportunity to try some applique.
It's good to get excited again about knits that aren't socks.
