I like many of the colors, but I would like the new lilac color.

I can get some of the colors at the local Hobby Lobby, but I didn't know there were this many colors.  I have made several purses using this nylon thread.  It also works well to tie up garden plants.  The hot pink color makes it really easy to see through the leaves.

So happy to see great nylon thread in beautiful colors is available for crochet and knit.  I tried crocheting a shopping bag out of hot pink nylon thread from the hardware store.  It doesn't work, it's not the same as that meant for crafts.

I would love to make a purse and I have the time to do it. I am visiting my daughter and son in law out of state. They are both in the US Navy and since they had to go back to work I am being the granny nanny for the baby.

If I am picked, I would love some varigated or some bright green thread.

The timing of this is great for me, as I only just finished the final details on my first purse/bag and am ready to begin planning for the next one or two.  Although I've never worked with nylon before, I can see instantly how perfect a fiber it would be for the handle [in particular] as well as the main body of the bag/purse.   [43 Sandstone caught my eye first.]  I may have to watch that video a couple times to see the horizontal stitch Kristen is referring to for that tube-handle, but I love the look and obvious strength it presents.

I'm torn between the versatility of something like sienna, and the festive nature of the multi orange.  Though the more I think about it, the more I think I'd appreciate something fun-looking rather than utilitarian.  Multi-orange (#59) it is!
