I don't know if you have a Hobby Lobby store in your area, but they have their own yarn that has a metalic filament twisted into it that knits up really nicely. It's a worsted weight, soft and very pretty. It comes in a number of solid colors with a metalic thread. I used a black with silver metalic to knit fingerless mittens, a hat and a shrug for my boyfriend's sister and they came out really nice. I wish I had thought to take pictures before I gave them away!
