Well my mom found some yarn at the dollar store, it's called Ticker Tape. It's like nylons, and wow what a pleasure to knit with. I love it. Not enough to make anything real big so I knitted a belt for a friend of mine. It's about 60" long and I just used a straight knit stitch. I did learn how to taper the ends though and that's awesome. My friend is going to sew some beads onto the ends after I send it to her. Hopefully I will have a picture of it completed and her modeling it.
I am so loving trying these different specialty yarns.
