Mmmm, yarn

Curiousity killed the knitter. I had to check out this banana silk yarn, and bought some. Isn't it like a big hank of candy? Question is, what to do with it? I have one hank, it is about 150 yards, with 3.5-4 stitches per inch on size 9 needles. Suggestions anyone?


Here is a closeup of the yarny goodness:

Purty! Bananas, who knew?

I'm seeing it as a collar and cuffs on a knit jacket. Of course that involves knitting a jacket too.

I've been thinking about buying the One Skein book, maybe this will push me over the edge.

Rothane from the knittyboard posted a review of banana yarn a while back. Here's the URL:
