Thanks pal!

My One Skein Secret Pal (OSSP) sent my June package and I received it yesterday! She sent me a skein (well, a center pull ball) of JaggerSpun Zephyr Silk/wool in the color Lilac. There was also a packet of Boye cabone rings, which I think are meant to be used as stitch markers. My pal said that she thought the yarn would be good for the tank from One Skein. Hmm... at first I was thinking about how I'd need to get another ball to do the whole thing, and there is that issue of getting two balls from the same dyelot, but now that I think about it, I could just get another ball and make a two-tone tank. I wonder if any of my local yarn shops carry this stuff, I'd like to see the colors together before I knit up a garment.

Edited to Add:Here is a picture of my skein:I think that it is pretty, so I am particularly interested in finding someone who sells the Zephyr in the 2oz balls so that I can make the tank top and not end up with a GIANT cone of yarn in a color I will have then already used.

Thanks again pal! I need to get the package out to my pal this week. I went shopping in Minnesota when I was home over Memorial Day weekend.
