Hello lovely knitsters!  Smiley

I was given a gorgeous skein of Handmaiden Great Big Sea Silk for Christmas. It is a cousin to the Handmaiden sea silk but heavier weight (20 st over 4" on 4.5mm needle), and is 50% silk, 30% wool, 20% seacell (250m in one skein).  I don't know the name of the colourway but it is purples/greens/blues.

I don't have a pic, but here is a link to the handmaiden yarn page: if you scroll to the right a skein of the GBSS will appear.

I'd love some suggestions on what to do with it, that would do it justice. I'm thinking something lace-y & scarfy, but beyond that, not sure what to do.  Any ideas?

Thanks so much!   Smiley
