Does anyone have ideas for a top made of eyelash knit? I bought some on sale because it matched a turquoise skirt I made and I thought it would make a lightweight jacket or sweater type top. One problem is how to finish neck and front opening. I would really appreciate your brainstorming on this.

I think I'd use a nice medium weight wool or wool-like poly to bind the neck, front opening and sleeves.
I made a Xmas stocking out of that stuff once. What a mess.

Oh yeah, I'd keep it simple too.
