What a Yarn - knitcroblo7

When I think of yarns I've used and loved it's always the sock yarns that spring to mind (most recently Alchemy Juniper has really stood out as an amazing combination of softness and durability) but there is one amazing yarn in my stash that I have never used.
It's a beautiful luxury cashmere and silk blend from Jade Sapphire which I won from the lovely Gosia of Stitchville way back in 2007. It is the jewel in the crown of the stash. A yarn I would walk over hot coals for but it's very beauty means I just cannot decide what pattern to choose for it. I've been confident that something would one day jump out at me but so far nothing has seemed quite right. There are two things I know for certain about its destiny though. It will be a scarf and it will be a scarf for me!

I know what you mean - when you have such a special yarn you want to pick *the* right pattern for it! So hard!!

Ah, Jade Sapphire! Yeah, that would be a tough one. You'll know the right pattern when you see it.

What a gorgeous color! When I have a yarn that is so beautiful, I usually start thinking in terms of plain stitches, just because I don't want the pattern to distract from the yarn itself :)

Oh I can imagine how hard it is to find the right scarf that is just perfect - hope it comes your way soon.

A scarf for you - as it should be with a beautiful gift yarn. Good luck finding the right pattern.

ooh i think we all have one of those. Mine was my Helen's Lace that eventually became icarus, after a year of wondering and worrying.

That's just so pretty!

I just wound up my "walk over hot coals for" yarn and cast on 2 different things -both of which I don't like. It's like the yarn is TOO perfect to be anything by that gorgeous skein>
