Ummm, very nice yarn! I would make the Lacy Lattice Stole from Fiddlesticks Knitting.

Have fun!


I would knit Butterfly from Rowan Magazine 37. It's so pretty.

I have made a scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts using Kidsilk Haze, but you need way less than one ball to make it. It's very pretty though. I guess you could make tons of them :)


I would make Kiri, from All Tangled Up:


You only need three skeins - that would give you an extra for a scarf.


I'd knit Kiri! http://www.alltangledup.com/movabletype/my_images/my_patterns/kiri.pdf


Enjoy that yarn yumminess!


Andrea beat me to it, I was going to suggest Butterfly from the new Rowan too.
There's always the Birch shawl from Rowan 34, which takes most of 3 balls.


I would knit the short version of Marianne from Rowan 37. It would be so pretty in Dewberry!


You can make the Eyelet Wrap Cardigan (page 64 IIRC) from Rebecca issue 29. Happy knitting :)


Mmm.... I bought the same stuff... to make Kiri (pattern link already posted), or Karis from Rowan 36, or the Rebecca 29 wrap cardi.


I am biased because I just finished it but... the Cherry Blossom Shawl:


(click on the smaller image to see it bigger)

It is from Interweave Knits- Spring 2002.


Oh I definitely agree with the Rebecca 29 wrap cardi suggestion, I covet that so much and the knitalong definitely isn't helping.

I really like the Maggie keyhole neck top from Rowan 31 (http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-mag31.htm#MAGGIE) that Jackie knit here (http://www.jackie-blue.com/knit/maggie.html) but I think I'd need at least 5 skeins to make myself one that would fit, especially since it's already pretty cropped.

There's another cute top from that same Rowan magazine which only requires 2 skeins for most of the sizes! http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-mag31.htm#BREEZE


I like Ene's Scarf from Scarf Style. There's a picture on Knitpicks here: http://www.knitpicks.com/projects/Projects_Display_Yarn.aspx?itemid=30529221
Gorgeous color yarn! Can't wait to see what you knit :)


I would definitely make the srap cardi from Rebecca 29. Good luck deciding!


I would knit the paisley lace shawl in the spring '05 Interweave Knits.


Ooh, I would make either the Kiri shawl or the new wrap cardi from Rebecca. Both would be beautiful!


I would knit the Butterfly from Rowan 37. Its so pretty! Or make a gorgeous, floaty, spring scarf.


I would make the Green Moss Shawl, which, coincidentally, calls for 4 balls of Kidsilk Haze. It's gorgeous! You can see it here: http://www.heirloom-knitting.co.uk/simply_stunning6.html

karen w in michigan


i would make a shawl in the shape of a butterfly with beads and ribbon fringe


I love the Green Moss Shawl, but here are some other ideas (ot sure about gauge but I understand you can knit a wide range of gauges with KS haze):

Ultra Femme from SnB Nation - here's a pic from another blog:


Rosebud from Knitty.com, but I would modify it with lace at the wrists and hem (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/PATTrosebud.html)

Grecian Plait, also from Knitty.com, with or without more lace:(http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring03/PATTgrecian.html).


As many before me have said, either Kiri or Birch would be my choice. And, since you are only using 3 balls, you could use the fourth to knit some gloves. Brie from Rowan 36 only uses 1 ball of kidsilk haze. You would have a shawl and gloves to match!!



Pretty yarn! :)

I'd probably just start knitting in the round and see if I could create a cute bag or backpack. I guess several bags with that much yarn. :) Hold it together while I knit with some slightly darker color of the same color.

Oooh or you could make a large felted knitting bag! It would be so cute in that color, held together with either a slightly darker or matching shade bulky yarn and then again in maybe an off white? Then knit rectangles of the two mixes, felt it down. Then you could stitch it together with what I think is maybe blanket stitch it up with black yarn, into a cute duffle bag or rectangle shaped knitting bag/purse.

I can picture it but I don't know how useful my explanation is :)


See, I'd want a wrap... something like Cozy: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTcozy.html


I love this shawl!


do you have enough yarn to make the hourglass sweater from "last minute knitted gifts?" i could see it down with bigger than called for needles for a transparent effect


That is so beautiful! I think I'd make something functional that I could wear to work like the Lucky Clover wrap cardigan from Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch Nation even though it's way more advanced than anything I've made before. With yarn like that, absolutely anything you make will be gorgeous!


this is what the hourglass looks like http://www.figandplum.com/archives/000336.html


Oooh, many good suggestions in here already, including many I agree with, like Birch and the Rebecca 29 wrap cardi, so I'll give you a new one: the To-Dye-For sweater in the first Stitch n Bitch book - it's meant to be made with kool-aid dyed mohair, but no reason you'd have to. It has nice shaping, too, especially the bell-sleves. I don't know if you'd have quite enough yarn, but it's a thought!


Well, I have been dying to knit up a shawl, so my first thought was Kiri (not very original! LOL):

I also knit up the scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts with half a ball of the Midnight color. You can see a pic here of mine:
(scroll down)


I would make Maggie from Rowan 31. I bought KSH in Blushes (from Jeannette) to make it, but I haven't yet. Also, I plan to wear a bra with said sweater, unlike the model, but that's just me. :) Beautiful color!


Both of my suggestions are already up there...Rowan 37's Butterfly, and the Rebecca wrap cardi...maybe if it's voted on enough, you should just make it to please the masses of coveting knitters :)


Grace from Knitty:


Or, you know, the Rebecca Wrap Cardi. Becaue that's cute too.


I would also say....Birch! ;)


i'll add my voice to those suggesting the wrap cardigan from rebecca, or the kid mohair cardigan that Becky just made.



Please make Marta #110 from White lies


How about the wrap cardi from Rebecca 29. I haven't done it, but I've seen at least one completed, and it's beautiful. I think the Kidsilk Haze would be comprable to the GGH Soft Kid that the completed one was done in (not sure if that's what the pattern called for or not).


Ok... I didn't read the other comments first. Looks like I wasn't alone in that thought.



I would make the Heart Strings Hanging Vines Stole. Have fun with the yarn!


I would make from Rowan Number 37 the pattern No 25 Marianne by Sharon Miller.


I'm just starting my second Birch in Wicked KSH (black) the first was in Tropic (pale aqua)both gifts. I plan to make Madli's Shawl from IK Summer 2004 in Wicked KSH. Here's a pic of Madli's Shawl:


I made this in Brownsheep Naturespun Fingering in French Clay and it came out amazing! It's a fun knit and MUCH prettier than it looks in the IK link!

Last fall there was a Madli-a-Long, go here for more pics, A few used KSH too!!


Hope this helps!!

The few of my fav picks are already up there. Rebecca Wrap Cardi, Kiri and Knitty's Leaves (smaller version), Flower Basket Shawl and Imaldi both Interweave.

Here's 2 more that I've been looking at.

Entrelac Shawl Projectx Summer 2003 Interweave (http://www.knittedlace.com/projects/entrelac.html)

Autumn Lace Kimono project by Wool You Order (http://knittedlace.com/projects/autumnlace/autumn.html)


I'd knit the mohair sweater Eva is making on her blog - I know it's a Japanese pattern and probably unavailable to you but if I win, I'll send you the pattern book :)
Have a look at eva's mohair sweater here http://evashiu.typepad.com/. Cheers mona


I've been considering this yarn for the new Rebecca eyelet wrap cardigan and also for Ene's scarf from Scarf Style.

It's a gorgeous color!


Hi, I would knit Pull Violette from Adriafil. http://www.adriafil.com/index.html?id_pagina=3&id_lingua=2&id_rubrica=1&id_rivista=37&page=3


The Eyelet Wrap Cardigan of Rebecca issue 29 is damn cute!! It would look goooorgeous in that colour, too...So for me, it's a toss up between that and Kiri...You know, the Flower Basket Shawl from the Fall 2004 IK would look gorgeous with that yarn, too.
and to see finished ones, go to the knit along : http://www.clothesknit.com/fbsredux/
I could send you that mag, if you'd like to trade, as I'm done with it.
It wouldn't use up all of it...But it's sure look loverly!!
Hope you come up with something nice!


May I suggest Estonian Garden by Evelyn Clark? This is a Fiber Trends pattern for either a wrap or scarf, easy to increase or decrease the size as your yardage demands!

I have three skeins of Kidsilk Haze in Jelly that I am using with this pattern. I plan to begin with a provisional caston and knit one end of the border then pick up and knit in the other direction to make sure I get the most out of my yarn!


Aww jeez, someone else already gave my suggestion. But I thought of it on my own, so I'll repeat. I've been thinking a lot about the Fiddlesticksknitting.com Lacy Lattice Stole. I want to make something lacy and beautiful for my boyfriend's mom for Christmas, and she loves purple. :-)


I love the gauzy sweaters from Rebecca! There is at least one in every issue to choose from. I especially enjoyed making 21 from Rebecca #23. It is a bit ruffly which I didn't do to the neckline, but I loved the knitted hem on the bottom. I have never taken a photo.

Definitely the Eyelet Wrap Cardigan (page 64 IIRC) from Rebecca issue 29... It's so pretty! The other thing you could make is a scribble-lace wrap if you have some coordinating thick-thin like Colinette Point 5. Good luck with your decision!


There's a really lovely lace tank and coordinating cowl in Melanie Falick's Weekend Knitting. I haven't made it yet, but it's high on my to-do list.


I've been wanting to make Birch, it's such a beautiful color! But how about the shawl/scarf that Froggy is working on from a past issue Rebecca? It's stunning!
